I started volunteering at the Partnership over a year ago. The workers are all welcoming and friendly and there is a good atmosphere at the centre. It can be very busy and there is a buzz to the place. Both the staff and volunteers are dedicated to empowering the people of Northfield and the surrounding areas by giving guidance and information to best help the community. I have found out that they are very effective in doing this. I know the Partnership makes a big difference.
I have been concentrating on assisting people to find jobs and learn how to use computers and the internet. You can see your volunteering produce results, quite swiftly. It is satisfying to guide people through the experience of using information technology and see them learn, and apply it. I also help with making up bags of provisions for the food bank, which is essential to those in the community that require this service.
