Human nature being as it is, we only ever seem to receive feedback when it is negative or when someone wants to moan & complain, but this is the complete opposite. Today Rachel and 2 volunteers visited toogoodtowaste and delivered a “Mental Health Awareness” session and I wanted to let you know that it was delivered with sympathy, interestingly and above all professionally. The team like me thoroughly enjoyed the session which has given us all an even better understanding of mental health, the signs to look out for and further sign posting options. Which help us to better support our volunteers. Please pass on my thanks to Rachel, John & Wendy and I would have no hesitation in recommending this training to others.
Hi Simon, Hope you are well, I’m just dropping you a quick note to say how amazing Jo has been over the last 3 years and especially the last month. I always say how fantastic the support from interlink is, but without Jo I don’t think I would have had the confidence to have achieved half what we have at the centre.(even when she’s on leave). Having someone who is willing to tell you as it is, is a refreshing change, and Jo is definitely that person. Her advice and support has been fundamental in what we have become today, and I will always be forever grateful that I met her, we all think of her as a friend at the centre, and she has become invaluable to us. It may be her job to support us but she always goes that extra mile and nothing is ever too much trouble. I know the rest of the volunteers feel the same, as we have been thinking of a way to thank her. You really do have a little star in Jo, I just wish she worked with me!
We would like to thank the team from Interlink for working in partnership with us, ensuring that we are given the opportunity and support to access grant funding sources, enabling us to continue our work in the Community of Ynysybwl and Coed Y Cwm.
The process and its outcome was very clear given we had a series of questions to work through which yielded a series of options. Especially valuable was your knowledge and commentary on each question. Use of examples was valuable too. The session wasn’t rushed; we were able to give what is an important decision the appropriate consideration. I came away with not only options for the legal entity but the why for them. I came away with a clear to do list to enable me to achieve my action plan. I appreciated the follow-up support and know how you will engage with these tasks next.”
