  • If people want to learn something new, we enable that to happen by giving them the training and skills – and along the way they get good company and a sense of achievement from what they have made

  • I get a lot of satisfaction as an RSVP volunteer and I would recommend getting involved. Volunteering Matters to me because of the impact it can have on our community and making a difference to peoples lives. It gives me the opportunity to keep active and to contribute to my community in retirement.

  • Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made - we both get so much out of it. I look forward to spending time with her every week and we are always commenting on how much we have in common! Loneliness is something that can affect anyone at any time, and it is projects like this that are so important in helping to stop it. I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless
    Katie Wardlaw Befriender, Volunteering Matters
