Impact stories Allia’s story Becoming a Volunteer Advocate allowed me to feel more confident and assertive. ‘I have such a passion for helping others and creating as much awareness as I can for those struggling with mental health & VITAL allowed me to do just that. Since becoming a volunteer community advocate in 2017, Allia has found employment again. “VITAL has played a pivotal role in my progression and re-introduction to the working world. The training was delivered clearly, confidently, was interactive, productive and eye opening. I personally found it very insightful to learn about the valuable role of an advocate and how to empower clients to know their voice can be heard whilst simultaneously developing self-growth for both client and advocate.” Volunteering is a great step to take for many. Our training offers you the opportunity to learn new skills, build confidence and work within a team driven by ‘experts by experience’. Please help us maintain this VITAL service by donating today.
