Natasha Davies from Wrexham recently gained employment in a shop and believes she achieved the skills and confidence to return to work through volunteering.
Vicky Wright, Volunteer Centre Development Officer at AVOW said
'Natasha came to AVOW Volunteer Centre following the advice of
her Work Coach from Wrexham Jobcentre. She was signposted to
various opportunities, 2 of which she decided to commit to'.
'Natasha gained customer service and team work skills from
volunteering whilst enjoying meeting new people and giving
something back to her community. Natasha has volunteered ever
since she left school and has absolutely loved it; she describes
volunteering as 'brilliantly rewarding!'
As the County Voluntary Council for Wrexham here at AVOW Volunteer
Centre we offer one-to-one appointments to help individuals locate
volunteering opportunities, we regularly signpost potential
volunteers to charities and non-for-profit organisations. We
also facilitate a monthly volunteer drop-in which gives
organisations the chance to meet with and recruit volunteers as
well as providing a great networking opportunity.
We also endeavour to support people who may be facing barriers to
volunteering by offering reassurance, an open-door service, help
with form filling and as many return visits as needed to help build
their confidence so that everyone can enjoy a fulfilling and
worthwhile volunteering experience.
