Project Description

AIFA GOUGH

Age 14, Belfast

It was Kids Together in Belfast that first gave me the opportunity to get involved, when they asked me to volunteer to help with my youth club residential.

Spending time with young people with disabilities means I can relate to them as a peer, and have open conversations with them on any issues they may face. I’ve learnt to speak macaton, which enables me to communicate more effectively with some of the young people I volunteer with and I know I make it a lot easier for the leaders to have me there to support when they need me.
