‘Rae was a sensitive, insightful and fun facilitator. They are engaged and engaging; and absolutely made all participants feel comfortable. Their ability to work with a diversity of young people and our brief was nothing at all like school; it was really amazing.’ – Teddy McDiarmid, Open Doors Youth Service (ODYS).
