“I originally came to ACE about five years ago for support for my mental health and wellbeing and joined the art group, which I loved. That helped me through a very bad breakdown. From there, I became a member of the pantry and then later on, I joined the team as a volunteer. I started off being supported and now I’m on the other side of things, helping others and volunteering my time. Ever since then I haven’t looked back..." - Sheree
