Testimonials

Georgia

Editorial Volunteer

"Developing my editorial skills and participating in an organisation that supports people\'s wellbeing were my main motivations for volunteering at Pain Concern, but I have felt many other benefits. I only started volunteering for Pain Concern this March, but I\'ve already been made to feel part of the team by everyone here. A major strength of Pain Concern is that we stay connected via Teams and email, and so there is always a feeling of working towards common goals. Whenever I am doing a task, I get informative guidance and feedback, which helps me improve my skills."
