Jamie started volunteering at LinkAble as part of his Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award and quickly found that he enjoyed it. After finishing his DofE and being old enough to return as a volunteer, he did just that. He is currently LinkAble's youngest volunteer.
Jamie says, "Personally I’ve gained knowledge about the different types of learning disabilities dealt with at LinkAble. I’ve found that since I go to a school for children with learning disabilities and have learning disabilities of my own I can understand on a personal level what the children are dealing with.
If someone wanted to volunteer at LinkAble I would recommend they try it because it is a great learning experience personally and has allowed me to build up my CV. It is also a great chance to interact with children who have learning disabilities and have some great times supporting them."
