What’s the best thing about volunteering with Absafe?
I really enjoy the working environment at Absafe, as all staff and volunteers are cheery and so welcoming. I also love that we are helping youngsters to gain knowledge and awareness of how to keep safe both inside and outside the home, all whilst having a fun day at Absafe. That's the most rewarding part for me.
What have you learned since you began volunteering?
I've learned about the importance of working as a team but also working individually at the same time to deliver the high standard of teaching continually. I've also learned about adapting teaching to different ages and keeping it light hearted and fun but still highlighting the importance of our message.
Would you recommend volunteering to a friend?
I would absolutely recommend volunteering. It’s a great experience for anyone maybe looking to progress into teaching or working with children, or event management.

You should be flexible and adaptable, positive and keen to learn.
