Volunteers are what make the work we do possible, without them the activities we put on would not be as successful. The impact they will have will change a Child or Young Persons life for the better! Volunteering is a great way to build experience and skills.
When fifty hours are completed, volunteers can then receive nationally recognised certificates for their CV.
