You're always welcome at Scope, our thanks to you this Volunteers' Week
Volunteers' Week 2021As some of you may know, 1 - 7 June is Volunteer's Week and we wanted to let you know of how appreciative we are of those of you who have volunteered for Scope in the past, present and those who will in the future. And of course, a massive shout out to anybody who has volunteered here on the community.
The time and effort our volunteers give to their volunteer role helps Scope support more disabled people and their families. We are so proud of our amazing team of volunteers and we’d like you to know that we truly value your support and willingness to go the extra mile for us particularly in the last year which has been so challenging for everyone.

Volunteer on the online community
We recently started advertising two new volunteer roles as part of the online community, the 'Community Volunteer Adviser' and the 'Community Volunteer Host' roles offer you a super chance to get more involved and support your fellow members. You can go more in depth and find application information here.
Impact of volunteering
Scope, we want to make society one where disabled people have the same
opportunities as everyone else. You’ll feel good by volunteering here, because all the money you help us raise, goes to support disabled people
and their families, and the support you provide to your peers is forever appreciated by us and them alike.
of the many great things about volunteering is, it’s flexible and can fit in
around your lifestyle and studies, if you’re at college. If you’ve retired or
are between jobs, this is a great way to gain some experience, have fun and learn new skills.
The pandemic has meant our support services for disabled people and their families have never been more needed than now. If you’re keen to find out more, either drop into your local Scope charity shop for a chat, or visit our website to register your interest. We’re a very friendly team and you’ll thoroughly enjoy volunteering with us.
