Volunteer role: guest engagement
I have been volunteering at Leuchie since March 2017.
I am at high school and doing the Duke of Edinburgh silver award. I was keen for the volunteering aspect of that to be worthwhile and rewarding.
At Leuchie, I help out in the guest engagement team once a week. The guest engagement team run a daily programme of in-house activities and entertainment for Leuchie guests. So my volunteering role involves helping guests with the activities and socialising with them.
For me, one of the main benefits of volunteering is that I can help others enjoy themselves whilst also having a good time myself. It is never boring!
I have definitely benefited from volunteering already, especially my self-confidence which has got far better and stronger. Before I started I was less outgoing and much more shy.
The advice I would pass on to anyone thinking of volunteering at Leuchie is not to be scared to start. The first time may be daunting but over time it gets much better. It is such a rewarding thing to help out others and become the best version of yourself.
