Operations support

With just two full time members of staff (and a few part timers) we rely on volunteers for so many aspects of our work.  Aside from delivering support at sessions we have volunteers that support almost every aspect of our day to day work.  

Voluntary Operations Assistants provide vital administrative and project support to our team and helping to ensure that our services run smoothly. From designing posters, analysing data to help inform decisions, designing and managing our website, social media pages or giving honest opinions on new ideas – we need you!
