Thank you to LHA team for the trust, I'm glad this was my first volunteer experience cause I really enjoyed, in general the staff were very friendly, kind and helpful; tasks and hours were clear and respected, on top you get nice recommendations of things to do around the city. The place is well located and easy to commute around the area. Finally, I got to meet and work with amazing people that I can now call my friends ! So I would recommend this host for you experience.

The hosts in Railton house were very friendly. Isabel makes sure every volunteer feels comfortable in their experience. They offer two meals a day which saved me some money. I can also use kitchens and laundry rooms.
Cleaning kitchens and toilets is our main job. Sometimes we get really upset by the selfish tenants because they don't know how to respect the cleaners. Working six days a week isn't very nice if you want to explore more of London or farther places in England.
However, I became life-long friends with other volunteers here; this made my experience wonderful
