Our Volunteers' Stories
"Very enjoyable, all the volunteers, users and support staff were very pleasant, committed and helpful people. Some people may have pre-conceptions about what the Shelter is like, but I would urge anyone to give it a try, there is nothing to lose and a lot to gain."
"My volunteering experience was one from which I learned a great deal. Spending time with guests and volunteers was enjoyable and rewarding, making me feel quite humbled. I gained great insight into the many challenges faced each day by our guests. I enjoyed opportunities to sit and talk with guests."
"As a first time volunteer, I had been quite apprehensive, but the support from the leaders, project workers and other volunteers made my induction straightforward. I actually found it uplifting as i felt I was giving some respite to the guests over a difficult period of the year."
