About 50% of our volunteers who have started volunteering with us this year have come from direct referrals from Dudley CVS. Dudley CVS not only helps us as a charity recruit volunteers but also enable volunteers to discover new organisations and start in roles they may not have thought of by themselves.
Dudley CVS have also been great at offering advice and providing links external resources.
Whenever I have had questions about volunteering issues I have always had a quick response. I also have the feeling that I can ask anything no matter how small or stupid the questions may seem. If they don’t know the answer (as was one query I had regarding DBS checks) they were very helpful in advising where else I could look for support.
