To recruit we have a pretty much captured market and ask any current residents if they want to volunteer, you might say well that’s easy for you, but it’s not, we still have problems getting our residents to volunteer consistently. We can’t have members of the public volunteer due to risk assessments and security checks.
The differnce it makes is that we find guys and girls suddenly find they have skills and talents they did not know they had, of course it’s making a differnce in the community as well with the work we do but more importantly in the volunteers themselves

It sounds incredibly rewarding as well as fairly challenging!

Do you recruit volunteers from the wider community or do you tend keep it all ‘in house’?
