Volunteering? Your chance to shine

Have you ever thought about volunteering? Here’s a story about on of our amazing volunteers.

Magdalena is an experienced music teacher and knows how energising group music making is. She offered to set up and run a music group teaching people with mental health difficulties to sing and play instruments. Our Wandsworth team put the idea to our service users, and the answer was a resounding, yes!

“Your Chance to Shine” was born. Starting with weekly meetings, the group now sings in public from an event celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week to singing at a venue on Tooting Bec Common. For Magdalena and the groups members, these have been rich and rewarding experiences.

Can you volunteer and make a difference?
