‘You know lots of people keep saying I look better’

Tom self referred into the project after reading about a local volunteering opportunity in his local area.

Tom was recently bereaved, and struggling to adapt to the changes in his life- he felt lonely and isolated.

Although out of area he was linked to the Staying Well Hub to become a volunteer driver.
Tom has now gone from strength to strength -volunteering with several projects locally and across the Lower Valley. Tom is now better linked into his community- volunteering gives him a sense of purpose and occupation which has enabled him to process some of his grief.
