Volunteers do an excellent job helping to tackle poverty and change lives here in Notts. This week, we have been joining with the national celebrations of the benefits of volunteering, both for charities, their clients and the volunteers themselves.
We have used it as a chance to thank our four hard working volunteers who directly help us at Transforming Notts Together, but also as an opportunity to raise awareness of our volunteer tool - http://www.cuf.org.uk/transforming-notts-together/volunteer
Here in Notts, there are many great church and secular projects that are tackling poverty. One of the ways that Transforming Notts Together helps these projects is by advertising volunteer vacancies for free on our website. We also make it really easy for people from congregations and the community to get involved and volunteer with these projects. Today we are excited to add details of how to volunteer at Healthwatch Nottingham, an independent organisation that is aimed at making sure the community's views on health and social care services in Nottingham are heard.
It's great to be able to work with other organisations like Healthwatch in this way, because we know that it's only by working together that we can make a difference and change lives!
