Lead Volunteer Mentor
Laura has volunteered with us for a number of years now and we are so lucky to have her. Laura is an experienced mentor having completed various health and wellness training including a Mentoring Diploma, a suicide prevention course and guided imagery training. She has previously worked alongside a team of volunteers and is looking forward to heading up our new Mentor and Grow volunteer programme which we are launching in the autumn.
Laura’s relaxed and friendly character lends itself well to supporting our members via email, phone and face to face at both 1:1 appointments and at pop in and chat. Her knowledge of autism comes from personal experience, having been supporting her own autistic family members for several years.
If you come and see us at Dial House, you will also no doubt meet Laura’s guide dog Sarge. He is an extended member of the team and provides both comfort and calm to many members but watch out, he is partial to a biscuit or two and NEVER leave your sandwiches unattended!
