“Thank you very much, I had an amazing time volunteering this month and it really helped with making some decisions about my future.
"Without the fantastic group of volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to provide the level of service or help the people we need to. Volunteers are so important to the daily running of Headway; they are the glue that holds us together. I’m always amazed with the time and energy that the volunteers commit to Headway, assisting in unlocking individuals potential. However, volunteering is a two-way street, it gives individuals an enormous sense of job satisfaction, pride and a sense of achievement, making a huge difference to people’s lives."
Matthew Hillard, Indepdence & Wellbeing Centre Manager
“I became a Headway volunteer about 15 years ago, and the fact that I am still there shows how rewarding and enjoyable it is. There is always great support from the staff, so you never feel out of your depth. Apart from the satisfaction volunteers gain from helping service users fulfil their potential and improve their quality of life, it is quite simply fun to take part in the activities and make friends with everyone there. Whether you volunteer for a short time or long term, I guarantee you will gain a great deal from the experience, both in terms of personal development and pleasure.”
Pauline Watson, Headway Cardiff Volunteer
