Why volunteer with us?

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our volunteers have to say…

I work four days a week in Neath Library, being responsible for running the IT sessions and supporting other volunteers.

Being on the project has helped me develop my communication skills and will help me gain employment. My confidence has increased and I have been able to pass on my IT knowledge to other people so that they can be more confident in using a computer. I have also been able to help Neath Library staff deliver IT support to the local community.

Volunteering has given me more confidence and helped me regain my skills in another culture / country.


Volunteer – Get NPT Online Project

The skills that I have gained have been through data entry with Excel. I have never been that good at using Excel so it has been good to learn new skills. I have learnt cash handling of money, manage a room hire booking diary and so much more.

I have found it very easy to squeeze volunteering into my average week as I set aside one day per week to come into volunteer.  This has now become a good routine for me!

I would like to thank the MCC staff for all the help, confidence and guidance which I have gained through working here for the past 10 months.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working for this charity!
