Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.
My volunteer experience enabled me to practice my Microsoft Office skills and increased my confidence, which helped me to learn new skills and return to work. I appreciated being consulted on how to assist with change and enjoyed working within a very upbeat fantastic office team.
I enjoy being a volunteer and of use to people. Volunteering is a lovely way to put something back into the community.
Just wanted to thank you for putting me in touch with the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust. I’m loving it there.
At the initial interview, the Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. My details were passed to my chosen organisation and, although I was advised that it might take a few days before they would call me, the referral process exceeded my expectations as the manager called me almost the same day and we got a date arranged to meet up right away. I am delighted with my new volunteering role.
I retired at 67 in December 2015 and was determined to keep active. I visited the Volunteer Centre at Pershore and they made me very welcome. In an interview, the advisor gained background info from me and offered eight written ‘job descriptions’ which helped me decide. I selected Age UK and their Home from Hospital Service.
This is for people just discharged after an operation who need help at home. They receive a weekly visit (two hours) for six weeks. The roles carried out could be shopping, cleaning, trips to outpatients/pharmacy etc. I received excellent training from Age UK and all my fuel paid. All in all, very rewarding and the Clients were genuinely very grateful. I have since taken on another volunteering role as a Trustee. I strongly recommend volunteering to get you out and about and active, in a worthwhile way.
I cannot thank you enough for making our trip such a lovely occasion and look forward to using your services again very soon.
It was a pleasure to meet the volunteer recruitment team to talk through suitable opportunities. Together, we narrowed it down to roles offered by five organisations and I was given the chance to visit each before making a decision. This is a super service.
Thanks for the sterling work your driver did at our Open Gardens Day yesterday. Brilliant service
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
