We wanted to hear from local volunteers about their experiences of volunteering and from local groups and charities about the value of their volunteers.

We therefore visited and spoke to some of our member charities and created short films to highlight the amazing work of the charities and the impact of volunteers on their organisations.

Depaul charity

Depaul is a charity which helps young people who are affected by homelessness in the UK.

Hear their volunteer Ann talk about volunteering with Depaul in this short film. Along with Satu, Depaul's Volunteer Coordinator, who talks about the work of the charity and how they just couldn't do what they do without their volunteers:

How can you support Depaul?
