    Comment from King's Church:

    'It has been a privilege to have Dragofnlies as our 'local charity of the year' 2018/19. It's been a pleasure to raise money for you through our Christmas, Easter and general events throughout the year. We hope this money will make a difference to Dragonflies and the children who benefit from such vital support'
     
    They raised £4,000. What a fantastic achievement.

SuccessES


I just want to thank everyone at FSN who have made the last two years so amazing. I have learnt so much and met so many inspiring people. The work you do with the community truly changes lives, as it changed mine. The courses you provide have led me into employment and given me the skills to create a life for myself.
I will continue to sing your praises to those that I meet and tell people about the amazing work that you do and hope that FSN thrives for many years to come. I know you'll touch many lives as you did mine.

"I started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I started a Level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"

"The Community Learning courses have been a valuable resource for our clients looking to improve their mental health and wellbeing, as well as providing insight to self-management/coping strategies to build resilience. Our clients have reported they have found them interesting, informative and easy to engage with due to the welcoming and supportive staff and informal setting."

I have been at FSN since 2010. When I first came I knew about it because the fellowship was founded on Christian principles 80 years ago. Volunteering has changed my life. It is not only the staff who are always there to help you when you are at your lowest and feel down, but it is also a place where you can come and meet people. Volunteering for FSN has changed my life.
