Message from John Trolan, Chief Executive:

"In the past 30 years the Nelson Trust has supported thousands of people into recovery. We have worked with their families and friends. We have never tired of campaigning so that every addict and alcoholic who has a desire to free themselves from dependence, has the opportunity and support to do so and that everyone affected knows that there is hope.

We are inspired in our efforts by the recovery stories of our clients and we would not have achieved half of what we have without our many friends and supporters. In this, our anniversary year, we want to showcase the impact of our work in helping people to achieve recovery and secure the funds we need to ensure that we enter the next 30 years with the resources to build on our success".
