"I had been registered with NEWCIS as a carer for my wife and found them very helpful and friendly. When I came out of work in retail due to ill health I was looking for something I could focus on. The staff at NEWCIS supported me towards some general volunteering and then I took on training including First Aid and Food Safety. 

My main interest is digital inclusion and, with some training, I am now able to support others get online and teach people how to get the most out of their mobile phones. 

"Volunteering has given me the confidence to support others and has brought me out of my shell!"

Ian, NEWCIS Volunteer
