Can my volunteering role be used as work experience?
Volunteering and work experience are handled by two different teams at Brightwater.
If you have recently graduated with carer or support worker qualifications, volunteering may not be the best option if you're looking to gain work experience. This is because our volunteers do not take on hands-on carer or support worker roles.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide personal written or verbal references for volunteers. We can however provide a Letter of Volunteer Service, which states the date of attendance and role. This is available on request.
