Voluntary Action Leeds and the Volunteer Centre have been working alongside third sector organisations across Leeds to promote their network of volunteers, aiming to promote volunteering across the city in the many forms it takes. To do this, a portfolio of volunteer profiles has been collected, showing a diverse range of volunteering roles across the city. The profiles include photos and interviews with volunteers from a range of roles and charities across the city. The interviews look at people’s experience, reason for and why they value volunteering.
By telling these stories they aim to inspire those who haven’t previously considered volunteering to take a deeper look at the opportunities available. Volunteering is a great way to gain experience and to support communities, it’s a win win for those that volunteer and those they volunteer for. Please get the campaign trending in Leeds and use the digital pack to access social media images and case studies.
They plan to continue the campaign over the coming year, with a particular focus on showcasing diverse volunteers. Please contact [email protected] if you’d like to be added to the waiting list!
