Claudia Jones Organisation would like to thank all of the volunteers who contribute their time and energy as the organisation celebrates National Volunteering Week.
The organisation has always benefited from the contributions of volunteers. They have supported the direct delivery of projects as well as provided assistance with tasks at the organisations office.
The commitment volunteers make to the organisation varies from a few hours a week to almost full time. Some volunteers help with one off events or tasks whilst others volunteer on a weekly basis.
Past volunteers have used their experience to broaden their knowledge and skills, enabling them to gain paid employment. The organisation is keen to support volunteers offering regular opportunities to review their development and gain access to training.
