“It was lovely to be able give something back to my local community.”
I spent two weeks volunteering at the Fulham Community Partnership Trust which works with individuals, communities and organisations to helps improve opportunity for all residents. This small organisation has now merged with The Community and Voluntary Sector Association (Hammersmith & Fulham) to form a new community development agency called Sobus.
I got involved in the Fulham Community Partnership Trust after talking to friends and neighbours about local volunteering opportunities. I helped out with various administrative and customer service tasks which was great as it allowed me to develop my skill set.
It was fantastic experience for me as I am interested in working in administration in the charity sector. I also live in Fulham so it was lovely to be able give something back to my local community.
