Jill’s Volunteer Story

Hello, my name is Jill, I'm mum to Noah. Family Fund gave us an iPad and Noah uses it so much! It's his way to do certain types of communication, he does his school work with it, uses lots of developmental apps which are really useful for him and he couldn’t do on his previous computer. So we’re really pleased to have got this from Family Fund.

Why do you volunteer for Family Fund?

I wanted to do a little bit back. You can do all sorts of volunteering, from collecting money to just telling people about Family Fund. One of the things I’ve done before is speaking at events for them, so I can explain what Family Fund’s all about and how people can get involved.

I really love speaking at events, it’s something that I used to do in my pre-Noah job and it makes me really happy and feel good about myself! It feels like I’m really helping Family Fund out as well.

 

What would you say to someone who was interested in volunteering?

If you’re unsure whether or not to volunteer, there’s lots of different things to do, so just go ahead and get in touch and get involved!
