Furniture Project volunteer David’s story
I started volunteering at the project in September 2016 after hearing from my brother who works there about the brilliant services they provide.
I started off volunteering one day a week and now volunteer for three days. I enjoy meeting new people and have made lots of friends while working at the project.
I find the work we do very rewarding and feel it has helped increase my confidence as well as my job potential. Volunteering at the project keeps me active and makes me feel useful.
Prior to doing any voluntary work I was becoming very isolated. Now I look forward to the days when I am working.
The staff at the project are very encouraging and supportive and this motivates the volunteers.
By volunteering at the project, I am able to see first-hand what a difference the work they do makes to people’s lives.
