We have formulated what we wish to achieve and how best we feel we can go about it, and now are just awaiting to complete formalities (blissfully kept to a bare minimum !) a CRB check, Training and hopefully be “Buddying” by end of November.

Initially we will be a group of 4 to test the water, so to speak and next year, from what we will undoubtedly learn from this, we will be better prepared to fine tune our goals when hopefully more people join us, in what I believe, will be an extremely beneficial and rewarding experience.
