Glenys got involved as a volunteer with Praxis Care in July 2012.

‘I am involved in the Moving Up Project at the Secret Garden in Hillsborough.  The Moving Up Project aims to enhance the training and employment opportunities of Service Users, I deliver classes in literacy.  I really enjoy being part of the Moving Up Project team, I get a lot of support and encouragement from the other staff.

I’ve been taking literacy sessions at the Secret Garden since January 2013, I volunteer every Tuesday morning.  I really enjoy getting to know the service users, helping them achieve and learn each week.

I have volunteered with other organisations in the past and really enjoy the sense of satisfaction I get from helping others.  I would definitely encourage other people to get involved and give volunteering a go, by starting with a one off event you can easily build it up to a more regular commitment.’
