    Today for volunteer week we are going to honour one of our former volunteers (who I am sure many of you will recognise!)

    Martell works at The Bridge Project as part of the admin team. Here is her story.

    "I was a drug user for 15 years and experienced all the things that go with that. Bridge helped me get clean and I wanted to become a volunteer so I could give something back for all the help they had given me. I got to do so many roles as a volunteer, from helping in the gym to supporting The Vault. I also helped run a computer class and did acupuncture for clients. I volunteered for three years before successfully gaining part time employment here, which became full time after four months. I have learnt and developed so much. I am now using my skills and experience to support volunteers who give their time to meet and greet clients accessing the service and I love it - I can be a mentor and support someone in their volunteer journey as well as gain new skills.

    My message to volunteers is thank you for all you do, for making a difference, for being willing to learn. If you work hard and show commitment then you will reach your goals!"

    Rachel is another of our fantastic volunteers, supporting the 4Women service three days a week. Here is what she has to say about volunteering:

    “Volunteering is part of my recovery. An opportunity to show I’m not just an ex drug user. Giving back to the people who are starting their recovery or are still in active addiction brings me so much reward. Volunteering is a way to build up your confidence, knowledge, training and bring meaning back to your life.”

    Greenie is just one of Bridge’s amazing volunteers, supporting delivery of services three days a week. Here is what he had to say about volunteering:

    “Bridge and Unity has changed my life from attending as a client 4 years ago. I accessed all the process groups and got through the battle of multiple addictions. I started the health and social care course Bridge offers about 18 months ago, and loved all the learning and becoming more educated. I now volunteer in the A.I.M group, the group I first attended, and I love it. I also volunteer in the Fresh Start Hub, and all the support I get from staff is brilliant. As a volunteer at Bridge we are all looked after, the Volunteer Coordinator is always there for us, providing support and information. We volunteers at Bridge are like one big happy family. Come and join us. Greenie x”
