Rachael Tomlinson

Rachael is an exceptional, long standing volunteer who has used her experience of anorexia to give hope to others.

Rachael has often supported more people than is required under our Befriending service and supports the more complex service users due to her knowledge, enthusiasm, expertise and commitment.

Additionally, Rachael now has the time and desire to help train new and current befrienders.

“Honestly your service is AMAZING! Rachel was such a great befriender and helped me at the toughest times, never judged, always made me feel like I was progressing.”

“Felt so understood and like I made a best friend. Knowing Rachael wouldn’t judge me for anything I said I’m so sad I wont hear from her again”
