Aymeric’s Internship Experience: My name is Aymeric. I am from a Business School in French Guiana. I was encouraged by former intern Garry – who volunteered here in 2011 - to do my internship here at Ashford Place. The internship not only enhances my CV, but also opened my eyes to the reasons why charities exist here in England. I did not expect to be given so much responsibility as an intern, yet the whole team are very encouraging and allowed me to gain as much experience as possible. I’m very glad that I got the opportunity to intern here!
Pauline and Maureen from the Sacred Heart Church Quex Road in Kilburn come in on Tuesday evenings to prepare a healthy & delicious dinner for our clients in our Assessment Centre.
Both Pauline and Maureen say they have some free time now and so want to support vulnerable people in our community. Maureen is a pensioner. They love the atmosphere here and have learned so much about homelessness and people who are vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Pauline says:. Volunteering makes a difference to the lives of others. I have been volunteering at Ashford Place for a number of years and I am enjoying it. I appreciate the joy, fun and the friendships we give to the people on the margins of society”
Maureen: We come to Ashford Place not just to prepare meals but to talk to people also.
