I've been working in social care for 2 years and I was interested in possibly changing my career.  I brought someone to Mencap and Gateway and saw how much he and the rest of the people who went there enjoyed themselves.  I was encouraged to help out by the very friendly and approachable volunteers.  They explained to me what would be expected of me and how this could possibly lead to various career opportunities.

I feel a great sense of accomplishment from seeing how the people who visit Mencap & Gateway enjoy themselves and knowing that I have helped make this happen, it is an amazing feeling.  It has also helped me work with others to help with events and activities.  I really enjoy coming to Mencap & Gateway and although I don't get as much time to volunteer as I'd like, they appreciate this and are grateful for whatever time I can spare.

So whether your thinking of visiting or volunteering, I hope I'll see you there soon.
