Over the past few years we have been informally approached on many occasions by people wanting to get involved in supporting the residents at the Hollies on a voluntary basis. We really do value the offer of support as this can have a very positive impact on the lives and welfare for many of our residents. Volunteer time is extremely valuable and historically we have not had the internal resource to make full and valuable use of these offers of support.
From October, this year we are introducing a new ‘Hollies Volunteers’ induction and training course for would be volunteers. The plan is to develop a pool of regular volunteers and formalise a roster system. The plans will ensure that we can take full advantage of offers of support and provide a valuable structure for our volunteers to ensure that they are confident that the time that they are providing is being used to maximum benefit for all.
If you would like to know more, or would like to volunteer, please contact Peter Gardiner at firstname.lastname@example.org
