WAVE volunteer

“Five and a half years after I was bereaved, I came to WAVE and received enormous help, which allowed me to get my life back on track. A year or so later I realised how much my life had been turned around and I wanted to put something back into WAVE. I became a volunteer and would help in the office, Mondays and Thursdays. By doing so, it enables the permanent staff to get on with other work. It gives me the feeling of being useful and starts the week off on the right footing.”
