Posted on 28th May 2024

#VolunteersWeek   Vol to Vol: Advocacy Matters and Us

Steering Group Volunteer, Ann in conversation with Admin Volunteer, Nuala

I’m Ann and help AM on the Steering group and as a speaker for their Volunteer Training Programme. Sharing my story of advocacy support. I find it very interesting. I’m also am a Steering group volunteer.

Been with them a long time. First worked with an Advocate called Wendy who helped me, when I had to move. I decided to volunteer to do something different. I love it! The people are friendly and they have great volunteer parties and get togethers.

Talking to lots of different people and helping to motivate new Volunteer Advocates.

·      How I make a difference

By telling my advocacy story during AM Volunteer training.

Volunteer factoid:

More than half of the UK population gets involved in informal volunteering – but this is less visible. Informal volunteering can involve things like going shopping, providing childcare or doing housework for free for someone who is not a relative or a friend.
