Our Kathryn is in the Sutton Fun Run!

Support Advocacy Matters by sponsoring our very own Kathryn Paynter who is competing in the annual Sutton Fun Run on Sunday June 3rd 2018. Kathryn is in training for the event which is a far cry from her day job as an Advocacy Operations Manager.

Kathryn is currently developing the Volunteer Advocacy project which delivers Independent Advocacy support to vulnerable individuals in Sutton Coldfield, Boldmere and across Birmingham and Walsall. Its a really worthwhile cause so please give Kathryn as much support as you can at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kathryn-Paynter1.

Many thanks.

You can make a real difference

Stand up for the choices of vulnerable adults in Birmingham and Walsall. Its a worthwhile experience working with adults who need essential support to make changes to their lives.
