Amy’s story…

Amy volunteers for The Bridge Mentoring Plus Scheme which provides help and support to young people aged between 10 and 25 that have experienced problems and difficulties in their lives. They have also expanded its services significantly in the last few years in response to the growing needs the community.

The Bridge say: “Amy came to us originally to develop her admin skills and her employability. During her time with us she has supported every office in the day to day admin and more extensive research work for grants.

"Amy has been an invaluable help and support to all members of the office staff and has been extremely flexible in her working and will turn her hand to any task we ask her to do.

"She says she enjoys volunteering at the Bridge because every day she does something different. She feels valued and that she is contributing something to the organisation. She said her skills have improved and we feel her confidence has increased since volunteering with us.

"Well done Amy we’re lucky to have you!”
