Meet the volunteer…

Hi, I’m Emily. I am a mother of 2 and after  taking 7 years out to raise my children I decided to get involved with volunteering through VCS to improve my CV and to break me back into the working life. I am a volunteer advisor and mentor and have been for over 14 months. VCS has improved my mentoring skills, professionalism and helped me to understand the meaning of confidentiality.

My favourite VCS experience ever was when I helped a woman who was pretty down to turn her life around and gain loads of confidence. Helping others makes me feel great about myself and as my mentoring skills develop I can’t wait to help people even more.
