Chloe says “The Kings is an amazing place to get involved. I came in as a student on a years placement in July & after 3 months I feel right at home. Being here for a whole year will give me valuable work experience and I feel that I will be able to go back to University next September with more confidence in getting a good degree and knowing a lot more about myself and my future”

   Jenny says "I have been volunteering at the Kings for a few months and have really enjoyed the challenges and opportunities it has offered me. I have been able to expand on my skills learnt at university by creating a page for the brochure, and had the chance to be involved with exciting new projects such as the Artist Studio which will be an excellent experience for me in my future career."
