Quotes - Winchester charity
  • “I have felt more confident and have gone back to work - a positive step towards not feeling trapped…the calm acceptance of us as a family was inspiring. To have my sanity [volunteer befriender] arrive once a week was lovely and helped restore my faith in myself.”

    Judy, 5s to 13s mum
