Valuing Volunteers: Making the Difference
Many of the really important things we take for granted would not exist without volunteers, social care would collapse, sports clubs would disappear and many people of all ages would be left lonely and isolated. And with less money and fewer public services, the need to value and support volunteers is even more important. Supporting volunteering is a key element within the new Cwm Taf Wellbeing Plan.
Volunteering has never been so essential to communities – from people caring for family and neighbours to running a community group. One in three people actively volunteer and many more do not even consider themselves volunteers when helping out their friends or taking part in church activities. The people who volunteer their time for others are truly exceptional, and we talk about a few volunteers we know in this Volunteering edition of the Link, where you can also find out more information on the following flagship project:
Volunteers Week: How can you value your volunteers during Volunteers Week? If Interlink can help, whether with a thank you, a certificate or supporting a volunteer event, please let us know.
Making the Difference: We are launching Making the Difference – a new project to encourage people to volunteer from business or public services,
Valuing Volunteers: Will be open from 1stJune, if you really value your volunteers, please apply to take part in the Valuing Volunteers Award – Interlinks quality assurance scheme for valuing volunteers.
So let us all get together in Volunteers Week to celebrate Volunteering – let’s see if we can make every volunteer feel special!
