I joined the Secret Space as a volunteer in 2015 after being offered the opportunity by Gabriella Angus. I’ve found that the structure the work gives me to be a helpful of way of managing anxiety and a mental health condition.
I work on reception, and also helping with filing, garden duties and legionella testing.
I regularly come to Yoga classes at the special reduced price offered to volunteers.
I have learnt a lot of different skills such as cashing up, how to use the card machine and how to record payments on the website, and have become more confident over the years. My mental health and anxiety has improved, meaning I feel more comfortable working every time I come here.
The Secret Space has helped me by giving me work that has improved my quality of life and I have learnt some very useful skills. It is very nice environment to work in. I look forward to continuing my work here.
