Volunteer Telford

Volunteer Telford

Hi, we are the Telford and Wrekin Young People’s forum. We have been established for more than 5 years. We meet every 2 weeks at the Salvation Army in Oakengates. Through meetings and consultation, working with agencies and partnerships, we aim to influence change and development of services for young people. We support the UKYP members of the youth parliament.

We enjoy our meetings, making a difference, sharing points of views, having our say and shaping young minds and futures across Telford.

Volunteering with the group enhances our CV’s by giving us experience and opportunity and confidence of working together and this makes us, stand out from the crowd.

Aidan started volunteering at Club 2000 in November 2017. His mum works as a carer and had been coming to Club 2000 for over 3 years with service users and she suggested that Aidan could do some volunteering at the club as part of his Duke of Edinburgh award.

Aidan enjoyed his time at the club so much he decided to stay on after completing his Duke of Edinburgh.

He enjoys coming to club every week to catch up with every-one and he really enjoys helping with the football sessions.

Whilst at club, Aidan helps to get the equipment out for the weekly activities, he takes part in pool competitions and helps with the football. Aidan is available to help with whatever is needed.

Aidan would like to be a PE teacher or a Physiotherapist when he has finished his studies.

Aidan, whatever you decide to do, you’ll be an asset to any club /school or company.
