Helping the Helpers: Make it personal

In the sixth of our series about helping in a crisis, we talk to our super dynamic Chair of Trustees Alan Strang, about the importance of making it personal.

  • Instead of treating people as a group, take the time to understand people’s stories and treat them as individuals
  • You need to give people the opportunity to share what they want to share and respect that
  • It helps to show that you care and is dignified
  • Spending time with people is often more important than giving them things
