                                             Tip of the month

The most popular volunteer roles are in administration and befriending. The most frequently listed volunteer roles are in stewarding / events and fundraising. There is a gap between what many volunteers want to do and what is available to them which is something for groups to consider when involving new volunteers. 

If you would like more information please get in touch.
