Skills-based volunteers making a difference

Every month we ask our charities what difference their volunteers are making.

Anna's expertise has helped us to build a strong Advisory Board. As a small organisation it would have been extremely difficult to achieve key milestones without our volunteers' assistance.

Wesley was fantastic and has built our new website. Four out of nine GAV trustees (plus the charity secretary) have been recruited through Reach. I am firmly of the belief that GAV would not be a successful charity without your service.
