Linda Shearer, Dumfries bureau manager, stated, “I am delighted to have another high quality volunteer on-board in our Dumfries bureau and to assist with clinics in the Stewartry. She will be a great asset to our team”.

Mirin said, “The training programme has given me a great foundation to become an adviser. I have really enjoyed working with staff and other experienced volunteers to make a difference to the clients who have sought our assistance. Personally I have learned so many new skills and developed my experience that my CV has been well and truly supercharged!"
