Richard started volunteering in ReStore Lisburn 6 years ago, on a placement with Action Mental Health. He says that he's grown so much in confidence and loves to getting to chat with people every week. Read about his ReStore experience below.
I have been a volunteer for around 6 years now. I was diagnosed with a mental health issue and was placed here through AMH New Horizons really to just build my confidence back up and I’ve been here ever since.
I think the people, the other volunteers are kind, nice and everyone loves to help out each other.
I have a great personality, I like to help people and I am handy with using my hands to build etc.
I am normally on the till and I really enjoy that and getting to chat to people.
Well I have learnt how to be self-confident again. I had also never worked at a till or in customer service before so I had to learn how to do that.
How everyone gets on with each other and does so well.
I honestly couldn’t pick one, there has been so many while I’ve been here.
The way they help homeless people across the world and here.
