Our volunteers never expected the wealth of experience they gained from volunteering, read some of their stories below:
I feel so honoured to be able to volunteer with CADL.
I volunteer for “Nature and Natter” and FFF program.
Within these programs, some people have dementia and others love to get out,and enjoy other people’s company. This is an opportune time for their carers to have some respite.
To chat and share life’s experiences with each other is absolutely precious. I have learnt so much from them. Lots of laughs and always a very pleasant time spent with them. Great for my own mental health too!
Who knows what is around the corner for us as volunteers?
Volunteering is really useful for me to get knowledge, understanding and ideas, while also giving back to the community. Carers and Disability Link aren’t your organisation that just focuses on services, it’s far more than a service.
They want you to be involved, engaged, and feeling as though you’re part of something more.
I enjoy the company of my fellow workers. We sort, price, dust, tidy and we laugh all day!
