After taking early retirement I had plenty of spare time on my hands. I thought I would see if my skills could be put to use. I get a lot out of volunteering including learning new skills. The feeling of helping people even in a small way is very fulfilling.


I volunteered to put something back into the community and to gain new skills and knowledge. Volunteering has given me the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the UK’s support network and helping people access their entitlements.
