Volunteering in 2014
INTERESTED IN VOLUNTARY WORK? TRAINING OFFERED
It’s that time of year again when we look to improve our quality
of life, change our habits and see what the new year brings with
Pledging time, skills and talents can be one of those options.
Not only does volunteering improve the quality of the
volunteer’s life, it can make a huge difference to others too.
It could mean that someone who doesn’t see anyone from day to
day looks forward to a volunteer visiting for a cuppa, it could
mean that an elderly or infirm person is able to get to a
doctor’s appointment with a volunteer driver or that your local
park or open space is cleared of litter.
All these roles and many more can be found through Bracknell
Forest Voluntary Action. We are having a series of roadshows
promoting not only voluntary work but training to enable
volunteers to be better prepared for voluntary work, whatever
their circumstances. Courses such as Adult Safeguarding, Makaton
accredited training (a language programme to help
communication), Dementia Awareness, a variety of workshops about
volunteering, including those who might have extra needs such as
a learning disability or health issue.
BFVA will be running a number of different workshops and courses
throughout the spring aimed at providing information,
accreditation or skills for individuals to use, not only to
volunteer, but for work and life.
