Very Inspiring


Reading your wonderful feedback, I just wanted to say a big well done on setting up such a worthwhile scheme.  You have both obviously had a very thoughtprovoking and positive impact on the people you have supported through your sessions.  Are you planning to expand to other counties in the future?
