Our award-winning volunteer team

Our award-winning volunteer team

One of our fantastic teams of volunteers, has been awarded a Community Service Recognition Award by the Rotary Club of Brighton.

Our team of volunteers who help other people to find volunteering opportunities and help local organisations to advertise volunteering opportunities, received their award in acknowledgement of their “exceptional service to the community.”

The award was collected by two of our volunteers, on behalf of the whole team, in December 2016. The award was given by the Lord Lieutenant of Sussex as part of the Rotary Club of Brighton’s Citizen Awards which recognise volunteers who have made a difference.

Since April 2014, this team of volunteers has helped 245 organisations to advertise 566 volunteering opportunities, and helped 1,759 people interested in volunteering to apply for 3,987 volunteer opportunities. They also provided one-to-one advice to 954 people interested in volunteering on suitable volunteering opportunities for them.

We couldn’t provide the volunteering support that we do, without the work of this fantastic team of volunteers. We’re extremely proud of their work, and very grateful for the time they’ve given to achieving one of our key objectives – helping more people to volunteer and benefit from volunteering.
