“HEROS Charity/ North Farm Stud has been an amazing experience for me. I began volunteering as part of a recommendation by my counsellor in order to help me build up my confidence due to being out of work for over a year and suffering with bad anxiety my whole life. My previous work experiences have been fairly negative and found myself very nervous and confused and seemingly making a few mistakes and not progressing as quickly as my managers had wanted. This being said, I was a bit nervous to start with, but I was reassured from the beginning that HEROS/NFS were a very understanding organisation and willing to help, and I felt comfortable and welcomed as soon as I arrived.”
