I have been volunteering for over 5 years and the experience I have gained from that enables me to feel more confident in helping people in a variety of different situations.
I’m a Volunteer Advisor at Catford Library.
I’ve had this role since July but helping out in the community is something I’ve always been interested in. In the past, I’ve volunteered in charity shops and been a member of a management committee helping people get housing.
Alison is a 50 year old lady who has learning difficulties herself but this has not stopped her from helping others twice weekly at Deptford Reach and on the other days she volunteers teaching badminton. She continues to develop herself through training so that she can motivate others and increase her knowledge to pass on to others who face difficulties and hardship.
