Our success.

I would like to tell you how important Woodgreen has been in helping me with my life. my support worker Emily has helped me to get 2 volunteer jobs, join a computer class, WoodGreen’s friendship club supper club, the arts+crafts/karaoke/bingo class and also a Tai-chi class. I find all of these programs extremely enjoyable and helpful to me because they helped bring me out of my shell since I suffer from extreme anxiety disorder and major depression. My friend, Gillian Edwards, who runs the friendship club is the nicest person I have ever met and she makes going to these programs lots and lots of fun. Before I used to have no friends but now I have so many that I can’t remember them all. So as you can see my life was completely turned around for the better because of WoodGreen. I can honestly say that I probably wouldn’t be alive today if it hadn’t been for WoodGreen and of course, Emily’s support. Thank you WoodGreen.
