“Due to mental health problems I’m unable to attend college, so when I discovered you could get a retail NVQ whilst volunteering at Wood Green, I jumped at the chance! It is not really like work but more like a little family that support, encourage and help each other which in fact has helped me extraordinarily in my life.” Meagan, pictured
