Just over 2 weeks to go! And a message from Sally, Family Support volunteer

Thanks to all of our generous supporters, we are approaching the half-way point to our target!

We have just over 2 weeks to go and still have lots to raise, so please spread the word as much as you can!

Here's a message from Sally, who has been a volunteer on our Family Support project for the past 6 years...

"Hackney Quest Family Support helps local people benefit from support, which we offer in any way we can. It is run by a group of dedicated volunteers, some being young people who plan to work in the Care sector, gaining valuable first-hand experience, and others recently retired who bring career experience. I have now been volunteering for 6 years, mainly providing counselling for mothers who are having difficulty coping; I previously followed a 32 year career in a large Further Education College. Other support we give is practical, for example helping second language speakers to fill out forms or make phone calls relating to Housing or Benefits. We don’t turn anyone away, though signpost when necessary. The least we do is lend a friendly listening ear and offer a cup of tea and biscuits. The volunteering is very rewarding, not least because it is run by cheerful and competent managers, by whom we feel appreciated."
