Our Employment Officer in AMH New Horizons Antrim – Shannon McSeveney found the placement for Kelly Anne and she started volunteering at the end of April. Since joining AMH Kelly Anne has also taken advantage ot the many different courses on offer at New Horizons. Studying, gaining qualifications as well volunteering has helped Kelly Anne gain confidence and improve her self-esteem. Over the last number of weeks Kelly Anne’s mental health has improved significantly.

The Team at Marie Curie have praised Kelly Anne for her hardwork, describing her as kind, friendly and attentive whilst dealing with members of the public.

Kelly Anne said, “I love volunteering at Marie Curie, they really support me and understand that some days are better than others for me, this is very beneficial placement for me”.

As Marie Curie has had such a positive experience, they are now seeking another client from Action Mental Health to join their organisation. 

Fantastic news and well done Kelly Anne!
