“I take people shopping and I hang out and just let people vent to me. I help them clean and declutter. They get to choose what they do for the day. I’ll stretch it out or do whatever I need to do to encourage them to take the path they want to take.“
Vanessa, Chorus Support Worker
“We’ve got a really good bond. Me being there and helping them get back on track into their life and their community gives me a sense of achievement that I’ve helped.“
