Gemma Hogger

Community Project Support Volunteer & Play Worker - Art & Technology After School Club, Aberfeldy

My daughter suffers with anxiety, so it’s important for her to mix socially with both adults and children to help her manage her condition. By volunteering on the project I can be on-hand but in the background, which puts her at ease and allows her to develop relationships outside of the family.

Personally, it’s helped me develop new skills, meet new people and most importantly, I enjoy it!
Seeing my daughter develop and make progress with her anxiety has been really reassuring. I’ve learnt there are opportunities outside a school environment where I can work with young people and involve my daughter too.

I plan to continue volunteering to get more skills experience and help me with future job prospects.

Have your say
