I first joined Salusbury World as a volunteer during holiday club, summer 2016. The kids are fantastic, friendly, enquiring and excitable. I now volunteer once a week at After School Club. I honestly believe that the children at the school, because of their interaction with Salusbury World, are more open-minded and
more tolerant of each other. I see the older kids look after the younger ones, and some who’ve left the school have returned themselves to volunteer and put back what they’ve gained. I think it’s a real testament to the charity that these children are so well rounded and interesting.
I really like the way Salusbury World operates and hope that I can still be contributing to the wonderful work that you do for some time. I admire how you have made the volunteers feel so much a part of it. I have experienced many workplaces over the years and you are very special.
I first started volunteering with the after school club at Salusbury World while studying for my MA to gain experience working with refugee and asylum seeker children…and then never left! It is especially amazing to see how your support as a volunteer makes a difference to them. Seeing those who have recently arrived in the U.K. settle in a new environment, improve their language skills, communication and increase in confidence is such a privilege. Volunteering here is an incredibly fulfilling and humbling experience.
