Making a difference: how your work helps others
Our volunteers donate a huge variety of skills in a wealth of ways. They cover all kinds of roles, from working in hospital shops and cafés to offering transport for essential hospital appointments. From running weekly lunch clubs to creating community support groups.
What they all do, regardless of the role or activity they take on, is make a difference to the health and happiness of others.
That means giving people more access to services in their communities and improving social interaction. Helping people to keep doing the things they enjoy. Making sure people who might otherwise struggle to cope for themselves have the support they need.
We’re like a family and never stop laughing, it’s great fun.
Lunch club volunteer June has volunteered for over 30 years and set up her weekly lunch club. Catching up with friends over lunch and games or a quiz is the highlight of the week for members, many of whom live alone.
