[Volunteering with Footprints was] fantastic – I am so glad I did it and could be a part of it. The support was always there and staff were very approachable, on hand and checked in with me after every shift. Training was good and helped me to understand the kind of clients Footprints sees and what we could encounter. The coverage of emotional as well as physical health in training was great – I had never encountered that before.
