The Mill is truly inspirational; a testament to what communities can achieve. The impact The Mill has on people’s lives is phenomenal; I see it in my case workload the number of people who are referred to The Mill and the amount of support they receive directly and indirectly. People know they can get support, not just in using the building, but lots of informal support when they are going through a really tough time. I know first-hand that The Mill has had a transformative effect on people’s lives and the work that you do here is absolutely extraordinary.
