In Your Corner Team Story
“I enjoy meeting with people who are in a similar position to me.”
In Your Corner has been a great resource for young people like us; it makes us feel less alone and gives us something to look forward to throughout the week which is a lifeline. There are a range of activities that we enjoy from arts and crafts to cinema trips to eating out. In Your Corner is a mature environment where we’re treated like adults and can share our stories and experiences freely and openly.
“I enjoy going out for meals with my mates from the group.”
This group has provided us with the opportunity to make friends with others who are in similar situations. We really value the support we receive from Cornerstone and other young people who attend each week. We really appreciate how much the respite, informative and educational sessions and fundraising helps our mental health and quality of life, while supporting us in our day-to-day care roles.
“It provides good respite – it’s nice to have someone there to talk to and not get judged or ridiculed.”
