Congratulations! to our Volunteer Mentors Robert and Rachel, who received Community Chaplaincy Volunteer Awards last week! As committed and long-term mentors, Futures Unlocked feel that they are more than worthy of the award!

Rachel was titled as a warm and approachable volunteer, who is compassionate about the work she completes with her clients. She has spent a lot of her own time working complex cases in the community.
