OPFS celebrates Volunteers’ Week 2016
One Parent Families Scotland celebrated the work of our wonderful volunteers during Volunteers’ Week by having a celebratory afternoon tea.
Volunteers were awarded with certificates and beautiful cakes and had the chance to meet up with other volunteers they hadn’t seen for a while. OPFS is committed to volunteering and we appreciate that there are many areas of our work that we couldn’t do if it wasn’t for our volunteers and their contribution.
Meet The Staff sessions
Volunteers and staff in Glasgow had the opportunity to learn more about each other in May and June. Volunteers expressed an interest in learning more about the work we do in Glasgow and meeting more of the staff, from this volunteers were matched up with staff to spend a day with them to see what they do and hear more about their projects. The days were enjoyed by all, with volunteers spending a day in the office or attending events and tribunals to name but a few.
The volunteers said: “It was really interesting I didn’t realise so much went on” and “I enjoyed having the day out of the house and going to work”.
Staff commented that it was great to learn more about the volunteers and what they have been doing with OPFS, sharing information about their roles with them and discussing how we can work together in the future.
