Thanks for everything that you and Leeds Irish Health and Homes have done for me – it’s been a genuinely life changing experience! Everyone has been so warm and kind, and I’ve always felt very valued. I’d recommend volunteering with you to anyone, and particularly people who have been jaded by their day jobs!
