Some Quotes from our volunteers:
“It offers me opportunities to work within an amazing and inspiring team of people, learn more about art and important skills to hopefully progress my career to working within the art and culture world.”
“It is a very enriching experience, both in the intellectual and on the human side.”
“I definitely think that for people with anxiety specifically, volunteering is the perfect opportunity. You don’t have the stress of the paid role. “Are they going to fire me?” You are in a nice environment and it boosts your confidence. You can meet other people in a similar situation. And that can be good for your social life. When you feel anxious you are not sure how to get into the world – this is a step in. And over time as you spend more time there, your anxiety will reduce.”
