Thanks to Liz Walker from the Redbridge Volunteer Centre for inviting us to share with volunteers the new Timebank way of volunteering:
Give + Take Volunteering in 1-hour slots.
Lynne Rochford, a volunteer broker for the Volunteer Centre attends the weekly job club and outreach sessions on Wednesdays at the Salvation Army premises in Ilford. She thought the idea was fantastic and offered to become one of our timebank brokers!
It is so important for people looking for work to get experience and this is a way that nearly everyone could contribute to. For some people the idea of a volunteering commitment for a few hours a week – they don’t get it – but this is so much clearer – the idea of give and take. I think this will be very popular.
