“I found that it was a role that I could do around my family commitments when my kids were small,” explained Sarah of how she joined the charity.

“All these years later I still love my job and the service users are what keep me going. I love spending time with the people we support and each day is very different. And I know that what we do is making a real difference to people’s lives.”
