To help celebrate Volunteers Week, which runs from the 1st to the 7th of this month, Leeds Autism AIM are sharing some quotes from some of our volunteer mentors. Starting on Sunday, we will be publishing one Tweet a day with a quote from a mentor about what they gained from their roles.

Among the stories we will be sharing are those about skills gained whilst mentoring and how volunteering with us helped our mentors to come out with a greater understanding of autism. We would like to thank all of our volunteer mentors for all of their time and effort in helping mentees to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
