How did you find out about Crann?
Through a family support worker Deirdre Gallagher.
What made you want to volunteer at the Crann Centre?
I was asked to do it by Katrina Collins I was so delighted and privileged when she asked myself and my mum to help. As I like meeting people.
What has been your most memorable volunteering experience at Crann?
The open day was a great day.
What do you feel you have gained from volunteering at the Crann Centre?
I feel more confident and have made a lot of new friends. I’d have known some of them, but I have met a lot of others through Crann. By volunteering my time at Crann events I think I am more confident in group situations. I have been able to understand other people’s points of view and Crann has helped me realise there are other people in the same situation as me, it is very comforting knowing I am not on my own.
