“Ynys Hywel is a great experience and is very enjoyable. It teaches you about team work and has boosted my confidence which I know will come in handy when it comes to job interviews.”

Andrew Griffiths – Senior LIFT Mentor

“I found the day to be a great experience for all. I was really pleased to see the group working as a team, encouraging each other and cheering each other on all the way through the course. The day was a great experience to help this group raise their confidence, self esteem and work together”

Jo Micklewright – Prince’s Trust

“The young people really enjoyed every aspect of the day, but they particularly liked the animals and archery. Ynys Hywel has such a great atmosphere and a great range of activities. I love the cosy room and the wood burners and the accommodation is great for young people. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. I will definitely be coming back!”
