Conor in his castle

Conor Conor called MACS Newry his home and his time there was an eventful journey in which he overcame many personal challenges.

Towards the end of his stay with us, he participated in a project with Journey Free. Despite his initial reservations about attending and with the persistence of MACS and Journey Free staff, it set in motion his personal journey to where he is now. It’s a credit to Conor and everyone who supported him through the difficult times.

Conor was always willing to try anything and ready to give a hand when asked. He showed his cooking skills when we cooked roast rabbit and handy skills when he made the Christmas Tree! All while having banter with staff and young people.

Since leaving MACS Newry, he has worked tirelessly to source and secure his own flat – which he’s turned into his castle fit for a king!

Conor has told us the time he spent in MACS Newry was great and although he didn’t realise it at the time, he really benefited from our support. He’s now making positive choices for himself, has contact with his family and is in a happy relationship. The future looks great!

My time in MACS was a good learning curve for me, it helped me to get me the right attitude and make positive choices in my life.

We look forward to Conor updating us on his next adventures!
