‘This is a brilliant community resource. The staff are wonderful. You are made to feel at home.’
‘I love the Intact Centre! Such a hub for the local community!’
‘I used to have my own business, it was really busy but got too much and I became bankrupt. I needed help and support as I got into debt and things went from bad to worse. Intact is amazing, I don’t know what I would do without it, I am so grateful for all you do, thank you.’
