"The staff are amazing. I can’t begin to mention names but I would like to make special mention of my keyworker, she is amazing and I don’t know what I would have done without her."

"The staff are really lovely, I wasn’t really expecting the refuge to be so welcoming and clean and really work. Thank you all for everything."

"A really good experience, I didn’t know what to expect and was scared and emotional. Staff are amazing. Lifesaver for me."
