Yvonne’s Five Minute Angels

The UK College is supporting this charity in memory of our former student Yvonne Barraclough who died in August 2013. She and her husband Michael both trained at the college last year. Yvonne was a very brave, compassionate person who always had some time to give others, no matter how busy or tired she was herself.

The charity trains volunteers, known as ‘angels’ to offer caring supportive conversations to those in need of emotional support. Those receiving help are themselves invited to receive training to offer support to others, if they so wish, thereby enlarging the network of Angels.
