Volunteer and make a difference in Blackpool
Faye Morton | Local parent and volunteer | Treasurer of Community Voice
“Before I started volunteering I lacked confidence and I would always question myself before I walked into a room. Sometimes I would cancel going to things because I would panic about going somewhere new on my own. After joining the Volunteer Academy I attended the “Build a Better You” programme and slowly my confidence started to improve. I’ve learnt to step outside of my comfort zone and I’ve learnt that I can be amazing if I just trust myself.
“Over the past 12 months I have joined Better Start parent forums, volunteered with the Park Rangers and am Treasurer of Community Voice. I even hosted a Better Start conference last year, and spoke in front of over 300 people!
“I feel like I am making a difference to my community by doing something positive, and I hope that I can lead by example and encourage other parents to become more involved on make their community a better place too.”
