AM praises Methodist ‘place of refuge’ project

The Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for South Wales West, Peter Black visited Swansea and Gower Methodist Circuit drop-in project Ogof Adullam based at Brunswick Methodist Church in Swansea earlier this week to see the work that goes on there for himself.

The project offers a place of refuge to homeless people, those with a drug, and alcohol problem, as well as providing a point of contact for prison leavers, and asylum seekers.

Mr Black said:

“I was particularly impressed by the skill and compassion of the volunteer workers whom I met at the project.

“It is often said that a society can be judged by the way it treats those of its members who seem at first glance to be of the least worth. This is an excellent project doing much-needed befriending and advice work with some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

“Its role has become even more vital since the sad failure of Swansea Cyrenians.

“Those whom it seeks to serve often have multiple problems which can make it difficult for them to form positive relationships, or to access the help they need to be able to turn their lives around. That is why initiatives like Ogof Adullam are so important.”
