One year ago we heard the sad news that we had lost CAIS Chairman, Dr Dafydd Alun Jones. Dr Jones was instrumental in the creation and development of CAIS, and clients, volunteers and staff have been inspired by him over many decades.
Today the Adferiad Recovery Executive Team and Chair met to mark the anniversary and share memories of Dr Jones.
Chief Executive Alun Thomas said: “When you talk to clients, volunteers and staff at CAIS about Dr Jones, the affection and respect they had for him is immediately clear. Not only did he play a vital role in founding and growing CAIS, he was also very much the heart of the Charity, enthusing the individuals he worked with.
“Dr Jones has left an incredible legacy. CAIS has supported thousands upon thousands of people in Wales to overcome challenges and achieve a better quality of life.
“Of course, Dr Jones was also instrumental in the development of Adferiad Recovery. It is sad that he didn’t get to see the four founding charities come together to create the new organisat
ion, but I know he would be proud of what we have already achieved, and be as excited as we are about Adferiad Recovery’s potential to bring such positive changes to the lives of vulnerable people across Wales.”
