STEPHEN'S STORY

I have very much enjoyed volunteering at the Partnership for over a year now. 

 

I started volunteering for two distinct reasons:

 

Firstly, I wanted to gain further skills and confidence in the areas of IT and with my interpersonal skills - after a period of illness and absence from the workplace.

 

Secondly, I have a passion for helping people, especially the more vulnerable in society; I love 'lifting people up' and get a real joy from sharing my skills in ways that benefit others.

 

My voluntary work continues to be a positive experience and I hope that I am making a difference in some small way.  I also feel like a valued member of the team, which I enjoy.

 

Since starting my volunteering, I have been successful in getting back into paid work, and I would thank Northfield Community Partnership for helping along that journey.
