Here are the thoughts of two long-serving and recently retired trustees :


“I have been volunteering for The Magdalene Group in the capacity of a Trustee for over 10 years.
I have watched it develop and grow. It has been exciting to see the new ways in which the charity has reached out, not only on the street but into schools, colleges, care homes for young people and into the community.
The risks around sexual exploitation have been brought into the light and more young adults and children are being supported.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of it all.”  Barbara


“It has been an honour to represent such an outstanding charity both in the work it does for our most vulnerable women and young people coupled with its ethos of non-judgmental love and understanding.  I will continue to follow the work and progress of The Magdalene Group with the greatest of interest albeit from afar.”  Janice
