Last year 250 highly trained volunteers supported the delivery of our work alongside 38 paid staff. Our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and help with everything we do: fundraising, IT, administration, campaigning, trusteeship – and, of course, giving advice.
Together, the work they do is worth over £1,510,954 a year. Without their passion and generosity, we wouldn’t be here today.
Our volunteers benefit from the experience too – for example all our retired volunteers believe volunteering keeps them mentally active, and nine in ten unemployed volunteers believe it helps them to move into employment or education.
