“I’m feeling more fulfilled now, helping people all the time”

After supporting his community through Volunteer Responders, Martin was able to work in the healthcare industry. Volunteering was just what he needed to make that next step. He loved helping people and found his current job wasn’t giving him nearly as much satisfaction as volunteering did.

The volunteering I did had opened up a new chapter in my working life - I felt confident that I now had the transferable skills required to find a part time job in the healthcare sector.

Now, my typical week includes two days working patient transport shifts with a private ambulance company in a paid role, but volunteering is still a big part of my routine. I’m feeling more fulfilled now, helping people all the time, and the work is stress-free.
