so I have a meeting tomorrow about volunteering, somethings finally going right!

so finally somethings going right. earlier in the week i spoke to a girl called brenda. brenda is a development worker and she oversees the friendly call service, which i want to volunteer for. if you remember this service works with vulnerable and isolated people, checking in with them via phone. so i spoke to brenda and she told me they use excel on their computers. i told her i could use excel that wasnt an issue for me. she told me they are looking into obtaining specialist software but for now its just excel they use. so i asked her could we meet to discuss if i’d be suitable to volunteer? she said yes. she’d love to meet me. so naturally i was thrilled. and i meet her tomorrow. i plan on telling her that either i can use my own laptop to volunteer, or if thats an issue and the files cant come off of their computers then maybe they could install NVDA which is a free screen reading programme onto their machines. I really want to volunteer with them. If a small issue like obtaining data like peoples names and phone numbers so that i can do my job is the issue then I plan on strategising to fix that so I can volunteer. The fact that she wants to meet me is a positive step though I think. At least she’s open to the idea. She sent me all of the necessary paperwork to fill out but I havent filled it out yet and wont until after the meeting tomorrow, thats provided she still wants me on the team.
