Volunteer Meeting Facilitator and Charity Ambassador Lauren talks about what she does with us and what makes it special. She’s also a bit of a social media whizz and helps us out in the office with that on a regular basis.

A word from Leanna, an Office & Events Volunteer
“Volunteering in the Changes office is so varied! Every week I’m doing something different, like ordering supplies for the next Mend for Good event, or contacting businesses about being a charity partner.
A bonus of working in the office is that the staff are so friendly and always helpful”
