Being able to speak English is making an incredible difference to these women's lives - and to the volunteers who are teaching them
There are particular challenges with mentoring the vulnerable people we work with, who may have a range of issues including dependence on alcohol and drugs, homelessness and mental health issues.
Teachers and children were thrilled by the transformation of their school by volunteers.
It's great to get out of the office for a few hours - and even better when you're doing something for the community
I'm so impressed by the dedication our volunteers have shown to supporting marginalised women in their communities.
We've launched the evaluation of our Shoulder to Shoulder Erskine project in Edinburgh and at Westminster.
We had some challenges but ended up having a wonderful team volunteering day at Organiclea.
