    Hello @Kathryn01 Pleased to meet you welcome.  

    Thank you for joining. Thank you for sharing a positive post.

    I am sure there will be members of our community and SCOPE staff be glad to offer any advice and information on Volunteering.

    Including myself.  One suggestion contact The Stroke Association may be need volunteers.

    With you having a stroke they would be supportive in helping you.

    Also may I add most councils have a Volunteering Bureau set up to give information, advice to those wishing to do volunteering.

    I know I have used our local one here in my area. Many times.

    Other suggestions have a look at SCOPE. For volunteering opportunities.

    We are a supportive community.

    Friendly lots of advice, information.

    Please ask the community anything some one will know.

    Pleasure to help you and meet you.

    Take care
