Praxis Care says thanks to volunteers

Volunteers, service users, staff and friends of Praxis Care gathered together recently for the annual Praxis Care “Volunteer Thank You” event in the Glenavon House Hotel, Cookstown.

This was an opportunity to share stores, say think you and recognise the invaluable support of the volunteers.

Praxis Care involves over 150 volunteers in its work across Northern Ireland; many of these volunteers are involved in our Befriending Service where they are matched with someone who feels lonely or isolated as a result of the mental ill health or learning disability.

Since October 2013, nearly 100 new befriending matches have been made as part of the “Together for You” project.

“Together for You” is a partnership project involving nine leading mental health charities and is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
