Previous From Door To Doc Feedback

“A million thanks for a fantastic trip to Doc/Fest. It's been interesting - if not surprising - to find out that the vast majority of our group were visiting the Showroom for the first time. The film has provoked a lot of thought and interest, and a couple of our members went back to the VR exhibition after the trip was officially over as they wanted to explore it further. All in all a resounding success, and a very good turnout on the day in comparison with other trips we've organised.” - Helen Lyle, Therapy Worker and Progression Lead, SAGE Greenfingers
