Ashley has recently found a volunteering placement in his local community and has been loving every minute of it. He wanted to share his story of volunteering to encourage other people to consider volunteering and helping organisations or people in need of some support!
Hi, my name is Ashey and I attend the Surrey Choices Camberley Community Group.
I wanted to find a volunteering placement somewhere, so that I could gain some work experience and develop personal skills as well as gaining and improving skills in the workplace.I volunteer at Alliance HealthCare in Camberley. My main tasks include shredding documents and assisting with other tasks that my colleagues need help with.I feel as though since volunteering here, my life has changed because I contribute to something when I am working which makes me feel happy and motivated to do more.I would encourage anyone who is thinking about volunteering, and even anyone who is not thinking about volunteering to give it a go because I have learnt so much and feel great when I’m working and when I go home!
