My name is Abigail, and my story was featured on The Makaton Charity website back on 10th May 2022. I thought I would give an update for your website to show you where I am: a proud volunteer playworker working for the incredible Darlington Association on Disability (D.A.D).
We work with children and young people aged 3 to 25 with complex needs to other special needs, especially young people and children with communication and speech impairments.
We work very closely with Makaton; we are all training and learning at the same time, and we understand a lot of children's and young people's needs. As a volunteer playworker, this brings my Makaton skills to the test, and it has come in handy when you're at work, loving every minute of being a Volunteer Playworker.
Also, we do various schemes through D.A.D, and we also love to learn and practice our Makaton skills.
I can't wait to see what the future brings for all at Darlington Association on Disability.
Thank you so much for sharing my volunteer playworker story on your website. Maybe a part three in the future. Thank you so much for listening to my story.
Love, Volunteer Playworker Abigail xxx
