Brittany is 19 years old and from Hull. She found out about Emmaus through a family member and, along with her mum, decided to volunteer at the charity.

The experience is helping to build her confidence whilst she is able to support the companions. Her role spans across the charity and she works in the outreach, community and retail departments.

Talking about her time volunteering at Emmaus she said: “I get a satisfaction from helping people and I gain confidence in myself.

“I take pride in everything I complete and particularly helping others out.

“I think that other people should get involved because it opens a lot more opportunities and you get to help others as well as yourself.”
