What do our partners say?
"I just wanted to send a quick email to say that your student has been a fantastic volunteer this year supporting two schools on our programme to deliver community based projects. We would love to have more students from your department volunteering with us." ( Emma Jarvis. Envision Coordinator).
"K**** was reliable, showed initiative and worked very well as part of our team... Her approach to families using the Centre was sensitive and welcoming... On one occasion she was able to persuade a small child to go and see her father when other more experienced volunteers had failed... She was such a successful placement, that K**** has agreed to continue as a volunteer". (Elisabeth, Child Contact Centre Coordinator)
