“I volunteer at Barnet Mencap as they have helped me a lot over the years – they were the first organisation I joined when I moved to Barnet. I like to help them as much as they have helped me and have always enjoyed doing it. All the people I volunteer with have been, and still are, always helpful and kind. I have fun and lots of laughs with them all and they treat me with respect.
I have volunteered in many different roles: answering the telephone; working on the juice bar at Saracens; attending different meetings as part of the Engagement group; bag packing; tin collecting; carolling; admin tasks for the office; interviewing staff; carrying out phone surveys to gain feedback from Barnet Mencap members; and more – you name it I’ve done it!
I would definitely recommend volunteering at Barnet Mencap as they are a very good company with lots of different opportunities. I have been here for at least 15 years and look forward to many more memories and experiences with them in the future.”
