Daniel's story...

"Volunteering has massively increased my confidence. I've gained qualifications, I've gained self worth. I've made new friends through volunteering that has helped me socially. Without BAVO's Volunteer Centre, I wouldn't have known about the organisations and wouldn't have started volunteering." | Read more |

Diane's story...

"After the death of my mother I had more time to help out somewhere, so I looked online and found BAVO. I visit Shirley once a week and take her out or just stay in and have a chat. I find that by helping Shirley, it makes me feel as if I have done something worthwhile."

Jan's story

"Volunteering has helped me make new friends and given me back some lost confidence. It has enabled me to use skills I once had in a previous job helping with my confidence to deal with people. I feel a productive member of the community now, it's given me a sense of worth and self-esteem." | Read more |
