Time is valuable so the time, effort and supplies that has been put into the project is so special. Our workspace has been transformed and the base is now an even more pleasant and therapeutic space for clients to visit and for our volunteers and staff to work from. It is so important that our space is a safe space, and that it is friendly and warming and with all the kindness received we have definitely achieved this. This week marks Mental Health Awareness week so to open the doors to a refreshed base is just incredible. ”
