SKC Skilled Volunteering project testimonials:

Jaqueline Williams from Getting Thanet Community Online received several hours skilled volunteering support from Sharon Moxon, from Kent Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company (KSS CRC), discussing social media.

“I’m very happy with the work completed. We exchanged information and contacts and Sharon is still supporting through twitter. Our discussion enhanced my knowledge of social media platforms to enable me to start using them effectively” – jacqueline

“As a result of improving the twitter following, Kent Online got in touch and they are likely to run a piece on GTCO. I’m absolutely happy with the volunteering experience. I really enjoyed sharing knowledge and made a lovely new contact too” –Sharon
