Volunteers’ Week is a chance for everyone at Church Urban Fund to celebrate and say thank you to all the volunteers investing their time and energy in their communities.
Resources to Support Work with Volunteers
We know the vital importance of volunteers for church- based and community programs which is why we have produced lots of great adaptable resources designed to make it easier for people to work well with volunteers.
Here is the list of topics covered by the resources which can be found here:
A word from our Volunteer Development Co- ordinator, Julia Hill, “Volunteers make the work done by churches possible and Volunteers’ Week is a great time to say thank you! Volunteers enable many people to find much needed support when they are struggling. What is wonderful is that whilst volunteers make a difference to people who need that help, so often the volunteers say that their own lives have been transformed by the experience of getting involved.”
Liz Chadwick reflects on the value of volunteering, "Volunteering with Together Newcastle helped me to rebuild self esteem following redundancy. It gave me a chance to use my skills and meet a great team of people whilst doing something really worthwhile."
Until recently Liz was a Volunteer Development Worker but is now Together Newcastle's Credit Champion.
Use your time and talents to help people transform lives. There are lots of volunteering opportunities in Birmingham, Lancashire, Middliesbrough, Newcastle and Nottinghamshire, which can be found here.
