Volunteering has given me a new lease of life.

I would definitely recommend volunteering. It opens new opportunities for people in all areas of their lives and is a good confidence booster.

Volunteering has given me a new lease of life. It has given me lots of confidence which I once struggled with, and has enabled me to get out more.

I was a service user; myself and my family were very well supported throughout the family support intervention we received so I wanted to give something back to help others.

I deliver the Make and Create group once per month for families and adults. The role involves planning and delivering the group and teaching the service users different types of craft work.

I have always been creative and wanted people to have the opportunity to learn a new skill, therefore I passed my skills onto others in the group who may have felt isolated.

I really enjoy working with families and children and teaching them new skills. I like to see the children get involved and see them thrive. The group has grown over the months from six people to over forty people, and it is one of our most popular groups.

I would definitely recommend volunteering. It opens new opportunities for people in all areas of their lives and is a good confidence booster.
