"My main support comes from a volunteer"

About: Guernsey House

(as a service user),

I have said lot of things about Guernsey House – I would like to point out that my main support comes from a volunteer called David.

On all different levels the support wasn't pushed on me, I chose. The fact that Dave chose me was my day. Now a trusted friend and confidant.

Good luck, and all the best.

Thanks for posting - I have passed on your comments to Dave - we agree he is a fantastic source of support and a great listener. We know that our volunteers offer a unique perspective which is very valuable to service users and staff.

I hope you also feel well supported by the staff here! It is always helpful for us to hear more about your experiences, you can post here, use the Recovery Tree in the waiting room or give your comments to Dave to pass on.

All the best with your recovery.
