“Volunteering at The Living Room has made me re-evaluate my approach to many things, particularly addiction. It has also given me a timestamp for my week (something to look forward to), continuing stimulation and interaction with others. I believe I make a contribution – in a small way- which in turn gives me satisfaction that my time is well spent.”
