  • Need

    Need

    We need funding, not only to continue our work with volunteers but, to develop the scheme to benefit more people. The Volunteer Co-ordinator will recruit and mentor our existing volunteers and would create further volunteering opportunities; particularly for volunteers requiring more help and support or with a disability

    Solution

    During the course of the next 2 years we wish to increase the number of volunteers coming to Bendrigg, to 200 each year. This will assist us to run courses for more young people with a disability.

    Impact

    All groups and volunteers are debriefed at the end of each week and their feedback is valuable in helping us improve our delivery and facilities

    Risk

    All volunteers, working with us for longer than a week, are asked to complete a CRB check to ensure we are not putting our visitors at risk.

    Reporting

    All donors will be acknowledged and an annual report can be sent giving an update on the project and showing audited accounts
