What our volunteers say

We regularly invite our volunteers to write a blog. This blog, by Sarah Ashley, is about her excellent volunteering experience. Click here to read it.

In the JVN’s latest volunteering survey from November 2013, our volunteers said:

“I really enjoy the fact that I can brighten someone's day and improve it for them.  I also fulfil a useful role in that clients can tell me things in confidence that they cannot tell anyone else.  It makes them feel better 'getting it off their chest' and they know it will go no further.  I get wonderful feedback from the people I visit and I find that lovely.”

“I think I am using my time in a worthwhile activity and that others benefit from it directly”

“I enjoy the work, the people and the atmosphere and feel I am really helping”

“It has helped me in numerous ways developing both personally and professionally.”

“Continue to keep the organisation going as fund raising is getting more difficult in the current economic climate so that the role of volunteers is increasingly important.”

“Keeping me young and active/keep growing”

“An opportunity to stay connected to my Jewish community without having to attend religious services or activities.”

“Using my experience of business in running a medium sized company to pass on that experience and help train the next generation.”

“This has given me the ability to be involved in very different areas than I work in and has given me additional skills.”

“It is a chance to help others whilst also developing myself. Being only 12 there is a lot I want to do and helping others is one of them!”

“Volunteering is an important part of who I am.”

“It enables you to put something back to the community, widen your network, gain new skills and have new experiences”

“It gives me the opportunity to use my skills now that I am semi-retired from my teaching position which I held for many years. I have met new people. It's good be part of a team now that I work irregularly as a supply teacher. I feel that I am doing something for the community and Jewish people generally.”
