On behalf of all my colleagues I would like to thank our fabulous volunteers for all their hard work, dedication and commitment to our service users during 2016. The volunteering scheme makes such a difference to many of our service users whether it’s a once-off piece of work or on-going support. May we wish you all an enjoyable break and a very happy and peaceful New Year.
Good News: Due to the success of the in-house counselling service we have now offered placements to two additional counselling students making a total of five for Wakefield and Kirklees. To build on its success we are now looking at offering placements to two students in the Leeds area who will be placed at York Road, Leeds. Volunteer Coordinator Katie Leon has already made links with the appropriate learning establishments to get the ball rolling in addition to exploring the idea with the teams in Leeds who are really interested in the service starting up.
