Volunteer Diaries

Quotes from some current volunteers:


‘’Volunteering with Assert I was instantly made comfortable and welcome by staff and members. There is always a date for my calendar with a wide range of fun activities at suitable times, enabling me to fit it in with work and university. I’m glad I chose to volunteer with Assert and have the opportunity witness all of the great things they do.’’



‘’I have volunteered with Assert since October 2014 and although it is a short space of time I have already learnt so much. In this time I have been to drop in sessions and life skill classes where we were teaching the service users how to cook. I think the life skills lessons are so much fun and very informative as they are simple tasks which benefits all. The best thing about volunteering at Assert is that they everyone is so welcoming and even though I have only been here for a short time I feel like part of the team. ‘’

Assert is always interested in hearing from potential volunteers.
