Real Stories

Alongside our annual reports, we wanted to tell the real stories of how Adullam has helped our participants and how in turn that has positively affected their lives, what we do and the impact of Adullam on the wider community.

We’ll be adding more unedited stories from participants in the hope that it inspires and encourages others to join us on their journey.

Everything I am facing is so demanding
I’ve no idea whether I’m sinking or standing

Wondering how all this mess can be erased

“I learnt how to understand myself better, how to be kinder to myself and that I wasn’t the only person to feel like this or to have gone through an experience like this…”


From the second I awake
I already know the route my day will take.
It is always the same.
I try to think that maybe it will different today
in some way.



 I became worn down and this led me to a point of depression, anxiety lack of confidence and low self esteem which I have never experienced before.…”

…”there is nothing I can do to control other people’s actions towards me I can only control the way that I act towards them.

 Christmas Giving

Each year we have the privilege of giving Christmas gifts to the residents of Littledale Hall Therapeutic Centre and Walter Lyon House, some of whom would otherwise not receive anything.  Christmas can be difficult time for those in treatment as they are separated from family and friends and so even the smallest gestures go a really long way. 

We’d like to say a big thank you to those of you who give financially to make this possible, it means a great deal. 

We also want to thank a number of local businesses including: Booths Scotforth, ASDA Lancaster, Sainsbury’s Lancaster, Sedbergh Soap Company, Fab Furnishings, Lancaster Boots and Lancaster LUSH for their donations of gifts and food that make the presents extra special – Everyone should have something to open on Christmas Day!

“I’m so grateful for your kind gifts we received at Christmas, such a wonderful thought”
