Five of our volunteers have got jobs in the last fortnight – huge congratulations to Dave (pictured), Max, Paul, John and Richard!

It’s great to see people getting on so well and moving on into work, and it means we now have vacancies for more people to join our team.  So if you are looking to take a step back to work, why not volunteer at HFS?
