What We Do


Come Ye And Rest Awhile

CYARA is a non profit association founded in 2015

Based on christian values,

its core activity is pastoral care in its many forms. 

CYARA is about people restoration, building connection and community.

The ultimate vision for CYARA is to have - or have the use of -

a centre, a haven of peace, where people can stay

during their restoration process, before returning home.

The prayer of St Francis beautifully describes what lies at the heart of CYARA

Please take a moment to reflect on these words
