Volunteer week 2019

This week we are celebrating national Volunteering Week.

Volunteers are vital to all of our work. From our Trustees, to our Authorised Representatives, and our work experience students, we couldn’t do what we do without them.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered with us. 

During 2018 and 2019 we worked hard to ensure that we offer the best opportunity possible to our volunteers and we were exceptionally proud and happy to have been awarded the Investing in Volunteers kitemark in May this year.

What our volunteers say:

“I decided to get involved as Healthwatch Lambeth came to my college to talk about the volunteer programme and I thought it sounded challenging. I became interested in the  work and  their commitment in helping children and young people  access appropriate mental health  and sexual health services. I want to move into mental health as a career and so this has provided me with great experience and the opportunity to meet and help other young people.”

“I can see that the other volunteers I come into contact  with are a good representation of the surrounding area. I also think it’s good that the staff get out -and- about to local community settings to encourage more people to get involved. I heard about the volunteering programme when one of the team came to my college and spoke.”

“I was recruited after talking to one of the team at a community event and I  then became interested in the volunteer programmes and particularly Enter and View. The training gave me confidence to undertake the volunteering role and I know that if I have any problems I can talk to a staff member who is the lead for the programme.”
