What a great success our Open Day was! We had over one hundred people turn up to see us at The Core on 17 February. Here are just a couple of comments sent to us after the event:

I thoroughly enjoyed your Open Day at the Core today – was made to feel very welcome on arrival. I learnt a lot about the services that DIAL provides – very comprehensive. I was particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment of the DIAL volunteers I talked to. It’s reassuring to know there are such dedicated people and organisations in Barnsley – long may it continue. My best wishes for your future work.
