“I volunteer as much for myself as I do for the residents. As a single mother and carer I don't have much scope to be able to carry out paid work and I don't get out much. Since starting my volunteering role with United Welsh I have developed a sense of belonging and purpose outside of the normal tasks of being a mother and carer." Hayley, Plas Hyfryd volunteer
"I really enjoy volunteering, it helps me get up in the morning. I love giving back and reminding myself that I still have a purpose at 71, and you can also make some very good friends." Mick resident and volunteer
"I help with the planting and gardening. As a volunteer, you get so much satisfaction and it makes you realise you're not alone. We all have different skills to offer as volunteers." Delwyn, resident and volunteer at Fitzroy Lodge
"Today I had seven people playing bingo, we played five games and the residents loved it. It was amazing, I really enjoyed it and they didn’t want me to leave!" - Allison, Plas Hyfryd volunteer
