I volunteer...at FURD

Do you volunteer? Yes I volunteer at Football Unites Racism Divides.

Where/in what role? Director.

Why did you start? I started about nine years ago-I was asked as there was little BME representation on the board, as well doing some joint work with them with the substance misuse project I used to manage.

How do you manage your time between volunteering and work? In my last job it was very difficult to fit it in but now I can be flexible and fit my volunteering commitments around my work.

What do you enjoy about it? The people and the enthusiasm from the young people and that they are, through their work, addressing community cohesion in the local area. The networking has been good too.

What would you say to someone who was considering volunteering? It's well worth it.
