The Living Room has held its annual Open Day at Stevenage, giving visitors an insight into our unique service and an opportunity to hear testimonials from some of our graduates.

On Thursday 6th September, we opened the doors of our Stevenage centre to partnership organisations, commissioning groups, local dignitaries, councillors and other members of our community. Visitors were shown around our facilities, met our counsellors, management team and some of our service users then listened to testimonies from three of our graduates. 


Rob Henry (TLR's chair of trustees) and Katie Carter (creche manager) greet Stevenage Mayor Margaret Notley.

Anthony, Susie and Jo gave powerful accounts of their lives before, during and after they attended The Living Room. All three acknowledged that they would not have been able to attend treatment if it hadn't been free of charge and they stayed because they could related to the counsellors, who themselves were in recovery.

TLR Founder, Janis Feely MBE with Chief Executive, Adrienne Arthurs.

We will be holding another Open Day at our St Albans centre on Thursday 20th September. Details here.
