What difference will you make?

What difference will you make? Last year we generated over £2.5m for our 1,000+ clients but numbers are on the up as a result largely of the cost of living crisis. In particular, those needing our crisis service who are in or, on the verge of, extreme poverty has grown sharply. This role will support our desire  to establish a broader base of partners and funding sources and will lead to a more diverse future direction,  and develop our service to minimise unmet need. What's in it for the volunteer? You will share your skills and experience and make a real impact on your local community. You will work with a team of dedicated people and maybe learn something new yourself.
