On the 3rd June 2013 the Social Inclusion and Wellbeing Team held their first Volunteering Fair, where service users were given the opportunity to meet with a variety of volunteering placement providers from a wide range of community settings.
Here is some feedback from some of the service users and volunteering placement providers who attended the event:
“I have gained a positive relationship with Highbury Hospital”
“I am interested in doing voluntary work with the idea of eventually going into work”
“My motivation for doing voluntary work is to meet people”
“I would recommend people to do voluntary work as it opens doors and helps you get a job”
“I have fear of getting to a venue, I need to be shown a few times to know where the bus stop is. ”
“Getting there on the bus. I need support to be accompanied on the bus”.
“The volunteers we have are a great addition to our team”
“Volunteers with mental health issues do enjoy our allotment”
