Volunteer Passport Scheme Nearing 100 Users
Our Volunteer Passport Scheme was set up last year to connect local charitable & voluntary groups with volunteers, and we now have nearly 100 Passport Holders! These volunteers have access to local training opportunities thanks to the scheme and are using their newly found skills to benefit organisations across the local community.
Rebecca Benwell, volunteer passport scheme co-ordinator, has said: “There are hundreds of volunteers doing so much in Bracknell Forest every day.
“Our community needs them, and we are hoping the passport scheme will attract more people to volunteering, give volunteering a stronger presence in the borough and give volunteers more opportunities. “
With a new YouTube video having been uploaded this month explaining the scheme, there are so many reasons for regular, local volunteers to sign up to the scheme…
- It demonstrates you have the basic skills needed to volunteer.
- It stops you having to repeat training courses and it saves vital money for the organisation you are volunteering for.
- You will become part of a group of over 100 volunteers working to make our area a better place.
- A Volunteer Passport can help give you confidence and open doors.
You could be the 100th person to join! To sign up to get your own Passport, visit our website: http://involve.community/supported-volunteering-in-the-community/volunteer-passport/
