Comments from some of our Volunteers

“I find that now I am retired, I want to give something back to my local community. Volunteering for carers services has helped me to achieve this, and I have a lot of fun”


“I had been out of work for a while after my caring role ended and I wanted to do something which expanded my skills and experience so that I had the confidence to go back into paid work”


“I love volunteering for a really worthwhile service which really does do a good job and they look after me and value me as a volunteer”
