Volunteer Q&A

We’re currently recruiting for Project Volunteers to work with us in the new year. During the countdown to our application deadline (on Friday 11th January 2019) we’re asking our current volunteers to share their experiences volunteering at BDP.

What do you enjoy about volunteering at BDP?

What I enjoy about volunteering is the idea that you could be making a difference and helping people make positive changes in their life.

What experiences have you gained as a volunteer?

One thing I’ve done, is that I was able to set up a weekly tennis session for people in recovery from substance misuse which is still running and hopefully has a positive affect on the people who attend it. I feel proud to have started something and have already met some great people who I’m sure are benefitting from the session. 

What would you say to someone thinking about applying to volunteer?

If you’re thinking of volunteering, definitely give it a go. The training was amazing and every single person who attended it was lovely. Gaining more knowledge about what BDP offered was really interesting and I’m proud to be associated with such a helpful set of people.
