Meet Emma Smith
For Day 4 of Volunteers' Week, we've interviewed Emma Smith, who helps HH apply for funding grants from trusts and foundations.
Where did you come across Hammersley Homes?
Emma: Louise [our founder] found my CV on the Reach volunteering website and contacted me. Because of my previous work experience in a field related to mental health I thought this was a great opportunity to combine my skills and knowledge.
What advice would you give to anyone just starting to volunteer?
Emma: Have a good think about which causes you are most passionate about. There are such a wide variety of charities out there it will help narrow your search and it really helps if you can be involved in something that you are passionate about.
