After a successful career in business, Caroline Powell founded A Slice of Happiness (ASOH) in November 2017, volunteering to work with those affected by homelessness.

Jacqueline Hollows, founder of Beyond Recovery CIC, was delighted to introduce Caroline to her facilitators Lili Bellini, Susan Marmot and Dave Saunders to assist with this new programme and support Caroline with her research papers and introductions to the research team, 3PRC.

Three years on Caroline has now completed several programmes with the team and has evidenced the impact of her work.

This summer also saw a new partnership with ASOH and the Watford Three Rivers Trust (W3RT).

Caroline quotes “I’ve really appreciated the support and guidance that Jacqueline and Beyond Recovery have contributed to this programme and will continue to promote the brilliant work they do in prisons. The research that has come from Beyond Recovery’s pioneering work has enabled us to make valuable connections and relationships. The work of the Beyond Recovery facilitators has enhanced our programme, especially having Dave Saunders, a powerful facilitator, who has the lived experience of substance misuse and being in prison.”

Jacqueline quotes “I am inspired by Caroline’s fire and passion for making change and bringing mental relief to her clients. I have been happy to support Caroline in whichever way is needed and look forward to our continued partnership.  The W3RT provides Caroline with a much-needed base and network that can help to scale ASOH and enable her ground-breaking programme to make a huge dent in the suffering faced by those facing homelessness”.
