If you have any problems, they’ll help you sort them out. We talk about making things better sometimes.

I can be more tolerant to people now. I could easily snap beforehand but now I don’t. There’s less stress.

I’m not so claustrophobic. I used to curl up in a ball, curl up and try to forget things at home.

I do art on a Wednesday and Anti-Stress Colouring on a Thursday. Coming here gives me a hot meal, it saves me cooking. It’s not a bad price as well.

It saves me sitting at home being bored. You make friends here, spend time with another person.

The workers they spot things before you do, you know what I mean? If you have any problems, they’ll help you sort them out. We talk about making things better sometimes.
