THE STORY BEHIND THE PICTURE
Volunteer mentor Brett has received full training and on-going support from our Mentor Coordinator, Sian Jones.
We are always delighted to hear from people wanting to volunteer.
We need your help in mentoring, providing learning support for young people, crewing and training people on the Swingbridge Community Boats, supporting our staff at events and office work.
Our counsellors are volunteers, too. Just a few hours can make all the difference and, of course, we pay your travel and other essential expenses.
