Hi my name’s Andy and I’ve been volunteering with VCS for over a year. I volunteer in the library and as a digital champion, however I am most passionate about Arts for Health. This involves overseeing and participating in an art group for mental health. I help people with their artwork and give them advice on how to improve their artistic skills.
I am generally quite an introverted character, however I decided to give volunteering a go and by volunteering with VCS I have been able to build my confidence, be open minded and meet new people. I am improving my people skills, which have enabled me to find my girlfriend. I have fresh up to date work experience and references, which will be extremely useful when I start looking for other jobs.
