OUR VOLUNTEERS EXPRESS THEIR EXPERIENCES:
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering at the job club. Staff at Deaf Umbrella are very welcoming and friendly and it has been a great experience to be a part of their team. Providing practical support for clients has been interesting and rewarding and has given me an opportunity to improve my BSL skills.” Liz P.
“Volunteering with the Deaf Umbrella CIC has been a great way for me to put my BSL skills into practice and gain confidence communicating with BSL users. Having such a clear focus is really great as sometimes making ‘small talk’ at the Deaf pub or social can be really hard work. At the job club it feels like I’m able to genuinely help people while improving my signing at the same time - win win! Louise, Rachel and the whole team are also really friendly and welcoming which makes it a lovely place to volunteer.” Jenni E.
