As a charitable organisation and social care provider, a lot of the work that BCM's projects do across Northern Ireland would simply not be possible without the commitment of our volunteer network.
For this episode of 'Because Caring Matters', Chris is joined in his upcycled cupboard by Janet, BCM's Volunteer Coordinator, volunteer befriender and international rugby star John Cooney of Ulster Rugby, and his befriendee Raymond. Hear first hand how both benefit from this relationship and how this has become more than a volunteer obligation.
Chris also gets to chat with Jane Gribben, the Community Engagement Manager for Volunteer Now, an organisation that seeks to connect groups, charities, and events with volunteers while providing those opportunities for individuals seeking to make a difference.
For more information on how to become a BCM volunteer, you can contact Janet directly on firstname.lastname@example.org. To access the Volunteer Now online resource and directory for opportunities throughout N.I, visit www.volunteernow.co.uk.
