Here is what one of our volunteers have to say about their experience supporting the people in our communities who need Aware services...

"The training I received gave me a new found confidence to become a volunteer in the support mail service. While always challenging I never regret the decision. It has helped me to make me so conscious of my own wellbeing and apart from the rewarding feeling of being able to make a difference, however small, it has also enabled me to give meaningful support to some friends and relatives who I was not previously aware were experiencing similar challenges.”
- Roger, Support Mail Volunteer
