Stories from Vounteers
We are pleased to be able to bring you stories from our volunteers
we believe they describe us best
Volunteer with ACT
Volunteer with Anglia Care Trust as an Appropriate Adult, in Domestic Abuse Support, Money Advice, as an Independent Visitor, in Housing Services or more. Free training, lots of experience and meeting new people are all of the things that our volunteers say that they gain from their roles. Listen to our team and our volunteers tell you about volunteering with ACT
Lorna, Supported Housing Volunteer
"I get that good buzz feeling" helping others. In recovery herself, Lorna feels that she's been given a second chance by ACT. By volunteering, she's building up experience and learning new skills/doing training and so volunteering is great for her as well as the service users that are benefitting from her support in our housing team.
Megan, Appropriate Adult Volunteer
ACT manages the Appropriate Adult service across Norfolk and Suffolk. We are grateful to volunteers like Megan for their time and dedication. They make a huge difference to vulnerable people in custody - a very frightening experience for many
Christina, Appropriate Adult Volunteer
Christina describes her role as a volunteer Appropriate Adult for ACT, and also goes to court to support victims of domestic abuse. As with all of our volunteers, Christina's role is invaluable. As a retired person, Christina gains a lot from volunteering in return.
Laura, Appropriate Adult Volunteer
Lara describes her role as an appropriate adult volunteer for ACT. Laura has volunteered alongside her university degree and has gained valuable experience whilst giving something back
