We asked some autistic people who have volunteered at Fighting Words about their experiences. What they shared with us is below.

Sam:

​The best thing about volunteering with Fighting words is...that you can’t decide what the best thing really is.

When working there, you are introduced to so many amazing things, like:

  • Working with friendly and supportive co-workers
  • Being in a safe and welcoming working environment
  • Being able to experience the different responsibilities that come with preparing an amazing experience for the visiting children
  • The chance to work with the children - helping them to learn and to learn from them as well

There are so many more things that once all come together can only be described in one word: magic.

Craig:

The best thing about volunteering with Fighting Words is the friendly environment: not only to the kids but to other volunteers as well. It is a nice welcoming place, the way they connect with the children and how they keep them interested at all times.

I think Fighting Words is a great place for primary school kids and definitely a very friendly environment. If you’re working as a volunteer, everyone is nice and friendly. I will definitely be back to volunteer.
