Ever wondered what difference your skills could make? Here’s how Steve, Gill and Sue made a difference, just by using the same skills they use every day.

When Steve met George...

,,

80-year old George lives alone and wanted to be able to use technology to connect with his family, but he’d never used the internet. It was a great moment when he received a video call from his daughter for the first time.

Volunteering has been more rewarding and enjoyable than I expected. I’ve been to see George several times and my fiance says I am always happy when I get home, and it’s true. So delighted my employer Ninja Kiwi signed us up to Social Good Connect.

When Gill met Suzie...

,,

When Gill Donald returned to work after maternity leave, she was looking to mix it up a bit.

The HR Business Manager from Forth Valley College browsed the opportunities on the Social Good Connect platform and within weeks was matched with Suzie Repova MSEd., founder of Catesbi, which looks to empower parents and understand childrens’ behaviour.

Gill said “I feel as if this is the perfect match in that I’m lending my HR knowledge and skills to a small Board that welcomes the structure and expertise, but the nature of the role means I’m also learning new skills while I’m helping.”

Suzie said: “Her HR expertise and input has been phenomenal right from the first meeting, and I know the other non-exec Board members feel the same way.  Having her support helps us see things from a different perspective.

“Thank you SGC, that was the easiest online recruitment in the history of online recruiting”.

When Sue met Linda...

,,

When Thorntons joined Social Good Connect at the start of the pandemic, Sue found that volunteering brought a sense of purpose to her and many of her furloughed colleagues.

She decided to take a step away from her usual ‘solutions-oriented’ approach and develop her listening skills as a befriender for people living with cancer.

Linda from Tayside Cancer Support said: ‘It’s a delicate role that needs intelligent listening skills, empathy (as opposed to sympathy), an understanding of counselling techniques and an appreciation that it’s not about giving solutions, advice or opinions.’

Sue said of her experience: ‘It’s really satisfying to know for sure that I’m making a difference to someone who needs support. I get direct feedback on that and it makes me feel good.’
