International volunteers day 2018

International Volunteer Day (IVD) is traditional celebrated on 5th December each year, and was designated by the United Nations in 1985 as an international observance day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism.

As a voluntary sector organisation, BSWN has always made it its mission to welcome volunteers into our team and help them realise their skills and potential while benefiting from the gift of their time, effort and knowledge. Our director, Sado Jirde, would like to thank all of our volunteers on this day for their contribution to us:

“Since we are such a small organisation, the contribution volunteers make to the impact of the organisations is immense. From helping with events to undertaking research, developing policy responses and promoting the organisation, our volunteers support all aspects of our mission in Bristol and regionally. We wouldn’t be able to have the level of impact we’re having on our communities without their contribution. To all of our volunteers and interns, thank you.”
