"Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!

It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
"My little girl has really benefitted from being with other young people in similar situations. She knows she is not alone and it's ok to be sad and angry. She talks about Nanna now a lot more"
