We are incredibly grateful to our volunteers; they help the young people and our staff in so many ways. Before the beginning of lockdown, we asked volunteers to stay at home. This was to protect our volunteers and reduce the chances of transmission to the young people. The absence of our dedicated volunteers has reminded us, very directly, just what a difference they make.
Teams are keeping in touch with their volunteers through emails and phone calls and sometimes video calls on MS TEAMs. Volunteers also receive the Chief Executive’s video updates to staff.
