Jack, Involvement Volunteer shares his experiences of Rosewood Involvement Centre
When I first arrived to Rosewood I was greeted straight away by Nigel, Rosewood Centre Manager who was very friendly and welcoming . He took the time to have a chat with me telling me lots of information which I found very interesting. He also told me quite a lot about himself and his own personal experiences. Nigel gave me a tour around the building including the music room for the resident band ‘The Rosewood Rockers‘ which I thought was a great idea!
The garden outside looked very nice from the hard work of the Rosewood Gardening Club.
Nigel introduced me to staff and members in the centre who made me very welcome. They involved me straight away letting me help out in the kitchen prepping food for the buffet.
I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere sharing lots of conversations and jokes. After lunch we had a chat from Nigel about up and coming events. It sounded like something I’d like to be a part of with plenty of different opportunities.
It was great to hear positive feedback of members soon to be graduating from a Peer Support Course and seeing everybody else being so supportive to them. I really enjoyed my time at Rosewood and I am really looking forward to coming back.
