‘I would highly recommend volunteering for The Calico Group – you’re giving back to your community and boosting your skills. At Furniture Matters, I was part of a long running volunteering programme, working alongside some who had been volunteering for over 20 years. I now work for Delphi Medical and Syncora  providing Governance & Assurance and it all started with voluntary work.

With volunteering opportunities, you are in control of which skills you want to develop. I knew I wanted to work in an office environment, and therefore volunteered on reception so I could gain crucial admin experience. It really gave meaning to my life at a time when I needed it most.’
