Volunteer Why volunteer Volunteer case study Sarah's story I have nothing but positive things to say about HCA. Initially I became involved by reaching out to Kate regarding the Befriending scheme and from the start my support from Kate was warm, welcoming and kind. After interacting with her I knew this was an organization I would like to be more involved in. As well as Befriending, Kate introduced me to the Media Arts Club, part of the Digital Media Project. I began volunteering weekly through this club - the sessions were taught by professional artists, the calibre of teachers was impressive and the staff's ability to keep all engaged looked effortless. Overall, I have consistently been impressed with the HCA’s engagement with the community and their ability to reach people of all ages and backgrounds. Being a part of HCA has made me feel a part of the community.
