Meet our Volunteers
“As a volunteer you work long days, but the staff are always willing to train you in whatever you want to learn and they tell you what you are doing right, but also what you need to do differently.
I learned a lot about myself, about who I am, what I am capable of and about what kind of person I want to see myself becoming. For this I will forever be grateful! If there was ever any doubt in my mind about me working in health care, this moment has definitely taken it away!”
“I would say it’s necessary for everyone to volunteer at places like Revitalise; to see the world differently. I spend all my time with the guests and love that I had met some of them during my first stay, so to see them again was lovely. I’m so pleased that I can come back to Jubilee lodge and complete my level two volunteering which will help me towards a career in caring.”
“If you’re worried about volunteering just do it. It’s amazing. I have gained so much out of this experience and I just can’t explain it here; it’s just a feeling you get.”
“Volunteering at Revitalise has changed my life. I was bullied at school and this is the best thing I’ve done for myself since. Being at Revitalise helps you to see past the disability.”
Cath & Helaina:
“I loved working and volunteering with Helaina. I really cherish the quality time we spent together as mother and daughter… I’m so glad that there is a charity such as Revitalise that offers people from all walks of life a chance to make a difference to society and themselves. They champion the ideals that I believe in: equality, diversity, opportunity and letting individuals define their own strengths.
