From Monday the 2nd June we are celebrating National Volunteer Week.
Volunteers are a crucial part of the work Daisy Inclusive UK do, without volunteers we wouldn't be the charity that we are today.
Over the next few days we will be highlight some of the work our volunteers do.
Firstly allow us to Introduce Karen.
Karen has been a volunteer for Daisy Inclusive UK now for over a year and a half...
this is what Karen had to say...
"I have been volunteering at Daisy UK for over 1 year now, I left college to come to Daisy UK as I felt I needed new opportunities, I have started progressing my IT skills and I am now along with another volunteer, setting up a braille club.
Which all of this has helped to built up my confidence and self-esteem, I was born blind, which meant I have never really had a full opportunity to work or build a career.
But with the help and support of Daisy UK I now feel that I have the correct opportunities to help build my experience and career.
I would like to become a disability mentor working with Daisy UK’s services users and young people."
