I have always wanted to work in the charity sector, so delved at the chance to work for a local charity. I am proud of the opportunities that the Volunteering team give to so many individuals. Being so inclusive and non-judgemental opens so many doors for those that may have not had the chance to thrive and develop before.
I am Volunteer Co-ordinator here at Turning Tides. I love meeting so many interesting and diverse people, both clients and volunteers. My job has a lot of variety and I love the freedom the organisation allows for creative and innovative ways to improve and enhance staff, clients and volunteers’ experiences.
Having previously been homeless myself I felt I could help others out of these circumstances and provide the smile we all need. I love everything about my job: being in the community and meeting new people, taking on challenges and going home at the end of the day knowing I have worked hard to make a difference.
Turning Tides have a really strong reputation as a homelessness provider. To be part of a charity that is innovative, growing sustainably and truly puts the clients at the heart of all that we do is a privilege. The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the clients that we support is so important to me.
