” I volunteered at Way Forward for a couple of months before starting my current employment and I enjoyed every minute of it”.
“The Way Forward programme is a wonderful place to volunteer, the benefits are rewarding to yourself, friends and your community. You get to make new friends, they make you so welcome and become part of the Way Forward family”.
“Volunteering has good health benefits for yourself, both mentally and physically. It increases your self-confidence, as supporting others provides a natural sense of accomplishment. It gives you a sense of purpose, it takes your mind off your own worries helping others with their needs. Having a meaningful connection to other people relieves stress and having regular contact with others makes a solid support system”.
