"Volunteer at Drug Arm Warradale"

About: Community And Family Support Service (CAFSS) - Drug ARM - Warradale Healthy Options Australia

(as a volunteer/advocate),

My experience at Drug Arm started at the initial training. I met a lot of diverse personalities with various skills and life experiences. On starting at Drug Arm, the support I received to enhance my skills to help others was unbelievable. Everybody has a different skill set and knowledge and the team is very supportive. I felt comfortable and enthusiastic to see my first client. To be able to help make a difference in people's lives and well being is a very humbling and rewarding experience.
