Our volunteers have told us:
“For myself, there is the feel-good factor of doing something for others. It’s using the skills that I have from my working life, and maintaining those skills. Also meeting other people. It’s trying to help take the pressure off other people, by doing what I can so that they can get on with other tasks.”
“Both organisations and volunteers benefit from volunteering so it’s a win-win situation!!!!”
“Volunteering provides fulfilment and rewarding experience, and had led to personal development which I wouldn’t have had otherwise.”
