Meet Ria – she has been volunteering as a peer support facilitator with us for over a year. She is a
huge asset to the charity and we really appreciate all her hard work!

“I have loved volunteering with Changes – I find great comfort and reward in the vast array of faces who make
use of the easily accessible and free service.

I regularly come away from the groups with a genuine spring in my step, sometimes after an already long day, just astounded and grateful to have witnessed/ felt part of such a lovely community of people, often willing to share their experiences and shared understanding, as a way of supporting one another.

Volunteering at Pride has also been a highlight as I really wanted to tell everyone about the great stuff that Changes offers, but from a personal perspective, they provided an opportunity for me to connect with theLGBTQ  community which I’m also super grateful for.”

If you have some time to offer, consider volunteering with Changes Bristol. We are actively looking for volunteers who can support our Befriending, Support Group and Office team and any skill set is welcome.
