Case study

Tina and Jordie

Tuned In

For the last six months, Tina Brooks has been volunteering at our small community home on Gloucester Road North. She takes residents out to a singing group every Thursday, and they really look forward to her visits.

"When I first came it was a bit scary. I wasn't sure that I would be useful," says Tina. Now, however, she has got to know the residents and is familiar with which songs they like and how they communicate what they are feeling. "They are lovely people," she says, "very likeable."
