Member's volunteer scheme

Dates-n-Mates members are offered volunteering opportunities with the project, to help shape and guide the project while developing their own independence and skills.

Members can get involved as a friendly face and earn champion points. As a friendly face, they would welcome and support new members attending events. Other roles and tasks may include; doing a speech at an event, helping lead activities or gathering and sharing feedback. Members can gain points for volunteering, with the person with the most points being crowned champion each year.

 

A current Dates-n-Mates Champion says:

“We help each other out, it’s not all about one person. It’s getting everyone involved, some people just need a little encouragement.”

dates-n-mates could not be the amazing project it is without a strong team of volunteers. They're energy, enthusiasm and dedication to support our staff, events and members has a huge impact on the success of our project. Each and every one of the volunteer team gives their time generously, to not only provide support but to share their skills, talents, compassion and most of all, friendship.
