“My five weeks were life-changing; an opportunity to share my skills, learn new ones and meet people from all over the world and from different walks of life! I've had experiences that wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't taken that first step and applied for information. As well as working with some incredible people, staff and service users alike, I became part of a family and had the opportunity to see what a difference volunteers can make to services that make the most of the resources they have. Now that I am taking that next step of becoming an ambassador for SLV.Global, I can share those experiences, encourage others to make a life-changing decision and support them as they expand their horizons in the world of psychology. My aim is to plan engaging events and utilise social media to share the benefits the placement can offer, along with tips and hints on how to make the most of the placement. It is also my mission to promote the organisation to mature students at my university, as I feel the placements are valuable to all students, whatever your stage or range of experience.”
