“I am inspired every day by Sweet Louise. Our members keep telling us that we make a real difference to their lives. Lives that deal with big questions as well as day to day challenges. But lives that can be positive and fulfilling. Sweet Louise extends a helping hand, listens, explains and inspires – when I hear about what our wonderful team does every day, it warms my heart and reminds me of why Sweet Louise is so important to me”.
