Volunteers Week - Why Steve Volunteers at METRO

12th June 2016

"Volunteering at METRO for me, enables me to help people in our community who need our help and support. Not only that, it grounds me after a day in the office, allows me to meet and interact with service users, gives me the opportunity to work with some great, driven people at METRO, and allows me to be a part of the great work METRO does. I was thrilled to see that HSBC offered a 'Pound for Pound' scheme; volunteering allows me to provide time to the organisation, but to help with much needed funding is an added bonus. If you are currently debating volunteering at METRO - do it!", Steve, host at our Pitstop Clinic.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
