A big thank you during Volunteers’ Week 2016 to all our wonderful volunteers who are busy all year hosting our via the telephone peer support groups helping to tackle loneliness.
The skills our volunteer facilitators contribute, in phone groups we call Talking Communities, enable people to help each other and to gain a sense of belonging.
From surveys that our volunteers help us carry out with participants we can show that being involved in a group leads to significant improvements in mental wellbeing.
All of our Talking Communities that we are funded to deliver are made possible thanks to the generosity of our volunteers donating their skills, commitment and enthusiasm.
Thank you once again to all our volunteers. Keep up the good work!
