"I have always wanted to volunteer and offer any free time as well as learn new skills that could benefit me in the future. The Volunteering Team really helped with this. They were brilliant at sending me volunteering opportunities and checking on my progress regularly throughout the course of my volunteering journey. They have also helped me to find a placement, which I was very satisfied with in a field that I would like to pursue a future career in.
While volunteering I have learned how to enter data into the database system, how to file documents, how to shred personal information and keep information confidential. I feel these new skills will really help me in my future career. I have liked also the feeling of keeping busy, and being apart of something that is making a positive contribution."
