AGM 2016

Friends and supporters of The Listening Place gathered for the Annual Open Meeting at Salisbury Methodist Church on Wednesday 5th October.  After presentation of the annual report and an opportunity for questions, they were treated to a very entertaining and thought-provoking talk by guest speaker, the Reverend Joanna Naish.  She spoke about the important role listening skills have played in her work, first as a school teacher and latterly as an ordained minister. She used stories and anecdotes, some humorous and some extremely moving, to illustrate how a good listener can help young people and vulnerable members of society find a voice and seek help at times when they feel they have no one to turn to.

 

The Listening Place has been serving the community in and around Salisbury for 12 years and its trained Listeners offer a free and confidential drop-in service.
