Future First staff volunteering stories – Amy

by Anna Darling

Alumni Programme Officer, Amy, tells us about volunteering with KEEN London.

“I love working with young people and wanted to give my skills and time to a meaningful cause.”

I have been volunteering since I was 16. When I moved to London after university, I wanted to continue giving something back. I love working with young people and wanted to give my skills and time to a meaningful cause.

I started volunteering with KEEN London nearly three years ago. Every other Saturday I provide one to one support to children and young adults with learning, behavioural and physical disabilities, during two-hour long sports and games sessions.

Children and young people with disabilities often face barriers to leisure activities. KEEN aims to eliminate these barriers by providing a fun and supportive environment for all participants regardless of their level of need.

I absolutely love volunteering. It is hugely rewarding to see what these children are capable of with a little encouragement. It is also great to spend time with like-minded people doing something fun.
