Volunteers’ Week 2023: Thank You!
We believe everyone has value and something to offer. This Volunteers’ Week we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all our fantastic volunteers! Our team of amazing volunteers help us to deliver our services, allowing everyone to feel heard, valued and understood.
We are also proud to be an Investing in Volunteers (IiV) achiever, having been awarded the quality mark in 2022/23 for the first time. Manchester Mind was assessed against six quality areas and proved to excel in all aspects of working with our volunteers.
Volunteers are vital to our services in many ways. During 2021/22 there were an amazing 2,460 volunteer hours contributed to help support our Food For All projects, including our allotment; the delivery of our advice work, as part of Manchester Volunteer Advice Partnership (MVAP); our peer support groups; and fundraising.
Our peer support groups are run by people who use their own experiences to help others. Thanks to our amazing volunteers we were able to deliver 168 fantastic peer support sessions for adults and young people.
Our volunteers embody our values of openness, belonging, strength and collaboration. So, from everyone here at Manchester Mind we want to say a massive thank you for the continued support of our volunteers, you are so appreciated!
