Last Revision: October 2021.
Between 2016 and 2020, I volunteered for the Stroke Association in the UK. This involved visiting the ward at my local hospital, the same ward that I myself used, and chatting to other survivors.
In addition, I started volunteering in 2017 for Age UK, a national charity focussed on the elderly. I still volunteer for this charity. The work involves weekly telephone calls to lonely, elderly people. This work was particularly important during COVID, when many of my clients were both vulnerable to COVID, and isolated from other people.
