Meet the Volunteers - Lara Edgar

With this week's 'Meet the Volunteers', we are delighted to introduce Lara Edgar, who has been volunteering with the Create programme. Lara has been a fantastic addition to our Saturday workshops team.

"After noticing on opportunities.creativescotland.com that Project Ability were looking for volunteers I decided to apply. I have always expressed interests in working with children, young people and/or adults who have additional support needs and I had heard of Project Ability in the past. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to gain some first-hand experience working with people.

It has been a pleasure so far to volunteer with Project Ability. I work with young people in the ‘Create’ programme on a Saturday and find it great to see how enthusiastic they are about making work. The staff are fantastic to work alongside who offer advice and help when needed. Overall I find the organisation very relevant and necessary after seeing for myself what the young people get out of it. It is such a rewarding experience and I hope I have had the same positive impact on the young people at Project Ability as they have had on me!"

Thank you very much Lara!
