Hope you got the position @mrhappy. What’s blue badge?

I volunteered for 15 months at a community house. I got awesome references that led to paid employment. It was a long slog but worth it.

thanks phoebe, i also volunteer at a community clubhouse, i’m involved with things like the newsletter, seasonal magazine, radio and other stuff.

its a scheme that has now become available to people with hidden illnesses including mental health, means i can park more easily.

things went pretty good at the interview this morning, an older social work student sat in on it and i was asked questions such as what i’d like to do for the organisation, so i said i’d like to do whatever they have but i’m not keen on stuffing envelopes, i said i’d like to use my skills as a peer support worker that i have learned recently, so it went pretty good, and only lasted about 20mins
