I volunteered for the day at STORM Empowerment (Support Trust Opportunity Rebuilding Motivation) in Battersea, a charity that empowers those who have had limited exposure to education/training and opportunities in the work force to change their lives.
They have become a beacon in the community (on this day they were taking a group of local children on a swimming excursion), and their weekly job centre helps jobseekers with difficult backgrounds create and optimise CVs, enrol in courses, write applications and prepare for interviews. I helped out with this and spent most of the time with a woman who has lost a lot of confidence after being out of work for four years while caring for her late mother, and who had an interview lined-up.
Seeing her confidence improve throughout the day was very rewarding, and I was very glad to be involved!
We'd love to help you to get more colleagues doing high impact volunteering
