Let’s hear it for our volunteers!

31 May 2019

From 1 - 7 June we are celebrating our inspirational volunteers across the country.

Volunteers are a vital part of the work that we do. They help us to deliver our services and support people to transform their lives.

Between April 2018 and 2019, our volunteers gave a total of 318,622 hours and volunteers from Sova gave 100,000 hours. When Change Grow Live merged with Sova in March 2019, we gained 777 new volunteers, and a number of new volunteering roles: Independent Visitor, Appropriate Adult, and Advocate. 

We are immensely grateful for everything our volunteers do. 

Supporting volunteers to grow personally and professionally is really important to us. Our Chief Exec, Mark Moody, started his own career in the sector as a volunteer at a needle exchange. Last year, 163 of our volunteers found employment as a result of their experience with us, and 192 gained new qualifications.

We couldn’t continue to help people without the support of our volunteers. Find out more about volunteering with us.
