About Us

Recovery Cymru is a charity operating across South Wales, offering support, help and guidance to people who are looking to begin or continue their journey to recovery.

We run two open-access recovery centres, one in Cardiff and one in Barry which are open 365 days per year. We are proud of our open access, which is led by people with lived experience and we meet our member’s needs with no judgement.

Our programmes are peer informed and peer-led, informed by psychological good practice. We offer weekly face to face support groups, daily call and text messaging support, and most recently, we have adapted our sessions for online to comply with ‘social distancing’ measures.

Since Covid, we operate a full online and ‘distance delivery’ schedule, including phone, videochat, text, email and online group programme. We are committed to continuing this long term to increase access and options for people seeking support.

Why we are taking part

Recovery Cymru is taking part in this challenge to raise funds for our recovery hubs – our ‘real world’ recovery centre and our newly established ‘distance support’.

The ‘RC Family’ is at the heart of our delivery and these physical and online spaces enable us to support, train and stay connected to our members, volunteers and staff. We also believe that meaningful activity, staying active and ‘being part of something bigger’ are important to us all, not only those in recovery - and we can do this together via The Million Steps Challenge!

Where will your Million Steps take you?™

The Million Steps Challenge:

Your Life, Your Challenge, Your Way™

Walking is great for our physical and mental health. But we tell ourselves we can’t find the time, we’re tired, we’ll start tomorrow.

But, big things can happen from very small beginnings. Walk, jog, run or even dance your way to a million steps. It all adds up to an awesome 500 miles!

Challenge yourself, compete with friends, and even raise money for a good cause. No more travelling to events, overnight stays, worries about training, expensive entry costs or high fundraising targets.

Sign up with Google Fit or Apple Health, sync your own devices OR use our full package* pedometer and app.

Everyone participant receives an introduction to mindfulness and strength and conditioning.

* Full package includes Bluetooth pedometer and specially designed app.
