Who Are We? CHAT Volunteers
CHAT 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. Su herself has a form of autism and reminds us that everyone is different whether that is midly or more severely. Su has trained doctors and nurses at local hospitals as going into hospital can be so difficult for a lot of people but more so if you have autism.
Ric is our business man who can help with anything in this field of work. Ric 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 but there is also someone in the pipework to oversee the financial side of things Jeanette is also our Senior Volunteer and admin lady. She has a secretarial background and has worked at Royal Hospital Haslar and Queen Alexandra hospital. Having gone through a few problems in her life she is just the lady when you need paperwork done!
