Volunteer Week




We believe in supporting others and that by volunteering your time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone or something other than, or in addition to, close relatives. This shows, great strength as volunteering is much more than anything you can put a value on, as you personally have made choice, to freely help individual for however long you choose too.
This can include formal activity undertaken through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action. Everyone has the right to volunteer and volunteering can have significant benefits for individuals and organisations.





Therefore, in order to celebrate the difference volunteers make. We will be promoting Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June with the hashtag #iwill 
Add this to your diary!

Volunteeringmakes a difference!
As an independent small business we know only too well, volunteers can help. You might not get paid but it isn’t just a one-way relationship; you can also gain a whole host of things by volunteering such as developing new skills or using your existing ones, adding new experiences to your CV, building confidence and self-esteem, meeting new people, giving something back and having fun! Whatever your background, work experience, gender or age, you will have a skill that someone needs.  No matter how busy you are there will be something that you can do. 

We have collated a wide range of volunteering sites and opportunities to showcase, the range of volunteering opportunities on offer and so we also hope that it helps to inspire people to find out more about opportunities locally, take part and try volunteering for the first time.

How we support those, who support us. we are making it easy for them to make that difference and we thank them for it? It’s the combination of support, training and encouragement that enables our volunteers to make this difference that they can take away with them and enable them to gain transferable skills for the future.
