Voices from FareShare West Midlands…

FareShare volunteer Maria

“Volunteering makes you feel good about yourself, it’s a wonderful thing to do. Everyone laughs and jokes here. It’s a great place to be. If someone’s feeling down, they’ll listen and talk through what’s going on.”
Maria, volunteer at FareShare West Midlands


West Midlands Brushstrokes

“Your mental health and physical health are linked and good food gives you energy, it lifts your mood. Good food is a tremendous boost for the people we support.”

Teresa Clements, Project Manager at Brushstrokes, supporting refugees.
