When Carol retired two years ago from a long career at the Child Support Agency, slowing down was not part of her plan. “I thought it was time to do some volunteering and give back to Albury”.
This passion for helping women and their families led Carol to volunteer at a local women’s centre.
“I was at Albury Women’s Centre for Health and Wellbeing for an event and I thought I love the feeling here, so I asked ‘Do you have volunteer positions?’ They called me back a few weeks later and I’ve been working on the NILS loan assessment committee ever since.”
Carol found her years working in the public service were excellent training for NILS.
“I love being at the Women’s Centre. Although I don’t have client contact it’s so wonderful to see the Centre’s clients benefit so hugely from NILS. I plan on volunteering here for as long as they’ll have me!”
