A Message to Our Volunteers - From the CEO of Befriending Networks

Tuesday 02nd June 2020

A message to our volunteers from Sarah Van Putten, CEO of Befriending Networks...

“Befriending changes lives for both the befriendee and the befriender and in my opinion is one of the most rewarding volunteering roles to undertake. It personally changed my life, career path and has hopefully made me a better person.

"This Volunteers' Week we are thanking the befrienders across the UK, just like those amazing people volunteering with Angus Carers Centre. They are providing nearly 3,000 hours of respite to carers through their befriending role. Your relationships with those you volunteer with truly makes a difference. THANK YOU!”
