Hi everyone, I?m David and I Volunteer at Community Solutions North West.
I found out about Community Solutions through Learn Direct and the Job Centre, after a period of depression, and it was the best thing I could have done. Volunteering has helped me significantly with my confidence, I’ve learnt new skills and with my life experience, it’s knowing I can help others achieve things they might not think possible.
The reason I volunteer is that I feel like I?m putting something back into the community. I hope other people get the same satisfaction as I do, knowing you can help make a difference in people’s lives.
I?ve carried out many different roles such as reception cover, driving the mini-bus, helping out with events and even wearing a tuxedo to greet guests at our Visit Me fundraising night at Mr Gatty?s on one occasion!
I would highly recommend becoming a volunteer as it is very rewarding.
Stay Safe everyone,
