Thanks for everything that you and Leeds Irish Health and Homes have done for me – it’s been a genuinely life changing experience! Everyone has been so warm and kind, and I’ve always felt very valued. I’d recommend volunteering with you to anyone, and particularly people who have been jaded by their day jobs!
Housing is important, yet you do more then that you give people like me and Paddy a chance to do something without feeling like we will be judged. A community that Leeds Irish Health and Homes have set up and run touches individuals.
