I have been volunteering since last year and I assist Pauline Fisher who is the volunteer lead at Mind in Bexley and East Kent Mind with administration duties once a week.
I wanted to volunteer to gain some experience and confidence working in an office as I hadn’t done so for 13 years. I have gained more IT skills and every week I find my confidence and self-esteem growing and look forward to improving and learning new skills with the support from Pauline.
I find working at Mind in Bexley very rewarding and I have found everyone welcoming and very friendly. I would recommend it to anyone who is able to spare a couple of hours or even more.
