Hearts and Minds

conference1Two hundred people attended the conference on addiction hosted by the Pioneer Association in All Hallows on 28th/29th September 2013. The theme of the conference was titled ‘The Spirit That Sets Us Free’ – Overcoming Addiction.

It was a great success and proved to be a very informative and educational weekend on the issue of addiction from a variety of different perspectives. Thanks to all those who attended our conference and especially to our speakers who gave such wonderful and inspiring talks. 

From many of the comments that we received in our feedback forms, it would appear that the vast majority of the audience were delighted with the weekend, stating that the conference went beyond their expectations as they gained a deeper understanding and greater awareness into the complex issues surrounding the area of addiction. Of course, the best way to judge is to experience our events for yourself!!
