“When our Work Placement Co-Ordinator asked me if I would like some voluntary work, I said I was interested in meeting the public, in history and in nature.
I was offered a placement with the Visitor Experience Team at The National Trust’s Polesden Lacey and have volunteered there ever since. I greet visitors and help with information and directions.
I love working in a team and being of service. I feel a sense of belonging: my social skills and confidence have grown. The lockdowns have prevented me doing what I love at Polesden, but I look forward to returning soon.”
