Wendy has volunteered at the Oxfordshire Mind Witney Hub for 6 years. During this time she has helped to set up the Get into Reading peer support group, encouraging service users to read and explore stories of all narratives to promote positive mental wellbeing.
On the 5th June 2018 Wendy was presented the Individual Award at the OCVA Charity Awards in recognition of all her hard work. Andrew Grillo, Locality Manger for Cherwell and West, says; “we would like to thank Wendy for all the time which she has given to the Get into Reading group. Wendy has shown that engaging with stories promotes positive mental wellbeing and discussion among peers. Volunteers are so important to Oxfordshire Mind, we would encourage anyone who is interested to get in touch!”
