I have been coming to Brunswick for about 3 years now. I started off as a volunteer working with a great bunch of workers on a Monday. The first day I arrived Brunswick it was amazing everyone was so friendly and jolly it was like being welcomed into a big family. I liked it so much, I decided to apply for a Relief Cover Staff post.  I got the post and began working mainly one to one with a lovely bunch of characters. I now work regularly with Alan on a Friday.

I am retired after  32 years working with people with mental health problems.

I now spend my time watching my son play football on a weekend, looking after my grandchildren and working on my allotment and garden. I regularly go to the Yorkshire Dales with my family and dog who loves going for walks in the countryside.
