Community Involvement

Recently a group of volunteers assisted one of the people we support sort through in his words, his “organised chaos”. The volunteers were able to provide this person with a tidy garage and workspace whilst removing hazards such as broken glass, trip hazards, and chemicals from his home. Not only that but we were able to assist him find some treasured possessions that he thought he had lost. This gave us a great opportunity to make a small difference to an individual’s life. Something that we are working on doing on a regular basis.
