I would like to write about my experience at the Rosewood Involvement centre in Ollerton. I have been volunteering at the Rosewood centre for a few months since 1st visiting for a meditation group there. I was introduced to the centre manager- Nigel Groves and some of the volunteers too.
They showed me around the centre and then explained to me what the centre was all about.
I later joined the communications team at Rosewood Involvement centre and was introduced to Trevor and more of the centre volunteers. Everyone was great, very helpful and understanding. Everyone looks out for each other and this lessoned my anxiety. I attended for only 10 minutes on my 1st day however the staff and volunteers encouraged me to keep coming. Over the coming months I now readily participate at the centre in various Involvement projects. The centre has given me greater confidence in meeting people. Staff, volunteers and carers have included me and encouraged me every step of the way on my road to recovery. I further would like to say that I think Rosewood Involvement centre should be part of everyone’s recovery journey. It’s given me the ability to gain some control over my condition and has boosted my confidence and strength to challenge my condition. Thank you Rosewood
