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.

- FSN Volunteer

"I feel more open in front of other people now"
"I'm less stressed, more confident"
"I feel good about myself - I am amazing"
"I found people that have experienced the same, it's good to talk to them"
"I've learnt little things that I can do"
"It's helped me talk to people and to make friends"

- My Time Now young people's comments

"Everyone was kind and never judged everyone"
"Sometimes I find it hard to control my feelings, actions, but I understand this now"
"It was fun and creative"
"I have got more friends now since starting the group"
"I learned that you should share your feelings"

- My Time Too children's comments

"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."
