Testimonials

“Last week I was feeling very upset over the death of my sister, and my advisor really took the time to listen to me. It really meant a lot to me that she would do this, and I left feeling much brighter and better than I had felt in over a week. Thank you so much! I really enjoy coming each week, and talking to the staff, as I am very lonely and don't see many people, their support, encouragement and conversation has really helped me, and I have loved seeing my CO reading go down - I got a 1 last week!”

Stop Smoking

It was less frightening than I thought, the advisor was very knowledgeable & made the meeting & myself feel at ease. Nothing to improve, would recommend the service to family & friends.

Margaret age 73, “The inhalators have been a god send, don’t know what I would have done without them”.

Bill  “I knew I hadn’t been forgotten about just because the Hub has been closed during this lockdown. I wouldn’t have been able to stop without the regular phone calls from Lisa and I have stayed quit now for nearly 7 months. Thanks, “
