Celebrating Volunteers’ Week

This week is volunteers’ week. Our volunteers play a really important role in helping us to provide safe, friendly spaces on the phone and online for people to connect to one another.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered with us this year including our Volunteer Facilitators, Online Community Guides, Volunteer Trainers, our Community Champions and the people who’ve given up their time to raise money for our work.

Beginning this week we’ve got a team of 4 students joining us from University College London (UCL). They’re here as part of a initiative called “UCL Global Citizenship – Voluntary Sector Programme” aimed at the students aspiring to be future leaders in the charity world.

Our team – Atika, Mike, Ayesha and Tom will be helping us find out about young people aged 18-24 and their experiences of loneliness. Watch this space for their findings.
