I started volunteering for Home-start in 2016 after enquiring about their opportunities at the Deveron office. I was interested in volunteering with Home-Start as they provide an excellent service to the community and I wanted to know more about what they offer. Once I completed my volunteer programme I spent some time in the office assisting with admin tasks and this gave me a chance to meet the Deveron Home-start team and see the important work they do.

I joined the board in 2017, having never worked for a charity before it has been interesting to see the role a board plays in the organisation. Going forward I will be taking on the role as Welfare Officer which involves liaising with staff. I am looking forward to seeing Home-Start continue to assist the community in future and offer my skills where I can..
