The unique thing about St Mungo's PAL service is the way it is staffed - almost exclusively by volunteers with experience of moving on from support services themselves.
This has huge benefits in terms of being able to engage and establish a relationship quickly with clients. This also allows the volunteers themselves to gain valuable workplace experience, access a variety of training and re-enter the workplace.
