Who Are We?  CHAT2US Volunteers

CHAT2US Volunteers come from all walks of life but in fact the reason they are here is because they enjoy meeting people and care about them.

Amongst us we have a retired Childrens Social Worker so vital for working with families. Chris is also a trained Parenting Officer and a fully trained Counsellor.

Our next Volunteer/Trustee is Leslie, again, an ex-social worker but this time working with vulnerable and elderly adults. Leslie is very keen to speak out about the work we do so if you would like to find out more please get in touch, she would love to meet you.

Su is our Autism Ambassador and is there to give us the help we need when speaking to anyone with autism.

Having a form of autism she reminds us that everyone is different, whether that is mildly or more severely.  She has trained doctors and nurses at local hospitals. For going into hospital can be so difficult for a lot of people but more so if you have autism.

The man we go to if we have been given a query from a business  is Ric.  He can help with anything in this field of work.   He is also interested in making sure we all have first aid training. Hopefully we can set the guys up at one of our coffee mornings soon.

Jeanette is our Project Manager and at present Treasurer too. She is also the main lady  if you have problems filling in forms especially for disabled benefits. Jeanette has a secretarial background and has worked at Royal Hospital Haslar and Queen Alexandra hospital. She has gone through a few problems in her life so is just the lady when you need paperwork done!
