Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people affected by alcohol, drugs or gambling?
Volunteering gave me a safe place to find me again. I can be honest and open and don’t need to hide my past.
Volunteering with Aquarius has been a beautiful experience for me. Surrounded by non-judgemental people from service user level to management. I appreciate how staff encourage and value my feedback and implement it.
I’ve enjoyed meeting lots of new people, including the other volunteers. It’s nice to chat with people as we go about our tasks.
Being asked for my opinion or to explain from my lived experience how I felt about a situation by a member of staff means a great deal to me
