Angie has been volunteering at the Centre for the Aston Family for ten months and mainly helps on reception. Angie had to give up a job as a nursery nurse due to illness, and came to volunteer with Birmingham Settlement in order to help herself get back into the work force and gain administration experience to help with a career change. “Volunteering gets me out of the house and gives me something to do. I enjoy meeting all of the different service users who come to visit the Centre. I have gained knowledge and experience here as well as making some good friends who I get on great with.” Angie has recently begun helping other service areas with administration too, which she hopes will give her a wider range of administration experience.
