I’ve always regarded it a privilege to be involved with CHAS. It is an organisation which brings so much joy to children, young people and families who find themselves in the most challenging of situations. As a Trustee, I feel proud of the staff and volunteers who keep CHAS running, and as a father, I’m in awe of those who use our service.
