In the third update post of the blog, we reflect on what’s been happening in August
We have made lots of progress with the volunteer programme this month!
On the Housing Buddies front, we have completed inductions with 2 new volunteers – Lindsay Roches (pictured above) and Shirley Watson. A third induction is organised for September! It’s really exciting that the project is now live and we can’t wait to share more updates about how the volunteers and clients get on soon.
Pictured above are Chris and Julie Fisher, two of our volunteers based in Cardross. I enjoyed visiting Chris and Julie to complete another workshop with them about what ideas they have for the volunteering programme. They were both excited about the blog idea, as well as opportunities for outreach volunteers and Housing Buddies. We have plans to work together to bring these ideas to fruition! You can read more about the Volunteer Workshops here.
Below is Stacey and her son, Aaron. I had the pleasure of meeting Stacey and Aaron when Stacey volunteered to feature in a case study for us. You can read the case study here.
