Our Team. Volunteer Profiles

Photo of Barrie During lockdown, we have been extremely grateful for the continued support of a team of our volunteers. The roles they have carried out have been very much appreciated by or clients too. We are going to focus on these volunteers and want to say a huge thank you to them. As usual, we could not offer the range of services that we do without the support of all our volunteers. 

Barrie is one of these volunteers. When the lockdown was introduced earlier this year, he quickly volunteered to help and has been one of the amazing, dedicated team.
Barrie's role has been to call our clients who would normally come in to the centre each week on our minibuses to attend the Activities Centre. This means he has made calls each day of the week, which has required real dedication and commitment. It has helped us to maintain contact with people who would normally have seen us each week and also helped to prevent the social isolation that our clients can be prone to, even in normal times. It also enables us to identify if anyone requires any further support.

We have had so many comments from clients to say how much they enjoy their chats, and we know that he enjoys it too. Thank you Barrie, your commitment has made a real difference during this unprecedented time and is very much appreciated.
