Meet some of our Volunteers

In 2017, Dimensions launched a volunteering programme so more people have the opportunity to get involved in their community and develop new skills. Our monthly Volunteer Spotlight will shine a light on some of our fantastic volunteers.

Over the past year, well over 100 volunteers have worked with Dimensions colleagues to make a real difference to the people we support.

On this page, you can meet some of those and find out what volunteering with Dimensions means to them.

January’s Spotlight – Ashley

Meet Ashley! Our volunteer under the spotlight for January 2018

“I’ve been volunteering with Dimensions for almost 5 months now and I absolutely love it.

“I wanted to give something back to my community. I’m inspired by my girlfriend who works at a homelessness organisation and my mum who is a nurse caring for people with mental health issues.

“I’m also studying a computing course at university, but I felt worried about the lack of work experience on my CV.

“As an IT Support Volunteer I help Dimensions employees with a range of computing issues, which is great because I get to tap into my skillset and interest in computing.

“I’m most proud of the internal newsletter I’ve produced for the team and I really enjoy putting it together.

“Before I volunteered with Dimensions, I was very shy and anxious. But the Dimensions team – especially Teri (Regional Assistant) and Amie (HR Business Partner) – have really welcomed me. I’ve made new friends and I feel like part of the team.

“I think the social skills I’ve learnt have been one of the most enjoyable and beneficial parts of being a volunteer.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Dimensions for taking me on as a volunteer. I’ve learnt so much and I’d recommend it to anyone.”
