"Since retiring early from professional life
and becomming an adviser with CARF,
I feel i am giving something positive back
to the community.
I can use the Skills and experience i have
gathered over my working lifeto help and
advise individuals as they try to deal with
a great variety of problems and
organisations that they find it difficult to
cope with on thier own."
Phil Leiper, Volunteer Adviser
"When I was finding it hard to get back
to work, I started doing some admin
work for CARF. It was very enjoyable
and while working around so many
interesting people and taking in such
a variety of knowledge from the mass
amount of resources CARF has.
I've learned so much.
Thanks to CARF I am also now in a
full time position of work where I get
to use all the knowledge and skills
I've gained"
