Hello, I’m Sam. I volunteer with Scotter Forward, it’s a car scheme for people who don’t have access to public transport to be able to get out and about. I also volunteer at the library and Trinity Arts Centre and have been volunteering with VCS for 5 years. My work involves administration, database input, library duties and promotion and marketing.
Being in a wheelchair has meant I have more challenges than most to overcome when volunteering, but VCS are so brilliant and supportive. Volunteering with them has allowed me to gain more confidence, communication skills, support, experience and new skills. I am able to give to those who need my help.
