Proud to announce an award for volunteer Flora Michalopoulou

02.06.2017 - 12:09

We're delighted that Flora Michalopoulou has recieved the health and Well being award at the splendid Midlothian Volunteer awards. 

Flora was given the award for her work with an isolated Midlothian family.  Flora visited a family in which mum's mental health meant that she never left the house.  Flora's unstinting support was key to raising mum's confidence that now a year later she is able to get out and about with the children and is regularly volunteering herself. 

The award was sponsored by Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership.

Come and meet us on Thurs 20 April

We still have a few spaces on our next volunteer training course which runs for four Saturdays starting on 22 April. Then there will be another training in May, dates to be confirmed.

The training gives you all the skills you need to support a family at home and really make a difference to their lives.  Our volunteers tell us they feel very well supported and that helping families is very satisfying as well as being helpful to their careers.  More info here
