Tracy - Session Volunteer

Recently I joined the Newbury Soup Kitchen between lockdowns. 

I knew for a long time I wanted to volunteer at the Soup Kitchen but I had to wait till the time was right for my family and me
I am hoping to be able to bring my knowledge of supporting people with long-term mental health and dual diagnosis. Personally I  feel that these health issues are misunderstood and that quite possibly any of these  illnesses could affect any of us.

From the first session at the Soup Kitchen I have felt very welcomed by the clients and volunteers I am looking forward to getting to know everyone more when things return to the new normal.
