Our Volunteers at Fledgling offer their time out of love and a passion for what we are trying to achieve, and all of our Volunteers are people who have struggled in ways similar to our members so we can offer firsthand insight.

Lara is relatively new to the Fledgling family but it feels like she's been with us since we first hatched. She is very much a dedicated member of the Fledgling team.
Hello everyone. My name is Lara. As a child I attended a Steiner school which I believe fostered my love of creativity especially using it as a means of self expression. I was never much of a talker and found it hard (and still do!) to communicate how I feel verbally. Instead I use dancing, painting, writing, poetry and performing as a means of expressing myself. Growing up as a teenager in Ireland I found there was very little if any support for people struggling with their mental health. So when I found this organisation I absolutely loved it because I think it's something I would've found very beneficial. I am glad I have the chance add some warmth and positivity back into the world.' and I've attached a photo as well, it is not very high quality but the only recent one I could find, if you need a different one let me know.
