From the first time we hear from potential volunteers, we’re excited about them joining us!
We invite anyone interested in becoming a volunteer to come for a chat, to sit with us and find out more about them and what they want to get involved in – and sometimes, it brings about fabulous opportunities neither we or they expected!
We have a couple of volunteers joining us soon, and we’re interested to know why they want to volunteer at Options. We spoke to Ruby to find out what she’s looking forward to as a volunteer at Options!
