Member's volunteer scheme
Dates-n-Mates members are offered volunteering opportunities to help run the project, while developing their own independence and skills.
Our key role is a ‘friendly face’ – welcoming and supporting new members attending events. Other roles may include; delivering speeches at events, helping lead activities or gathering and sharing feedback. Members gain points for volunteering – the one with the most points (from each branch) at the end of the year, is crowned ‘Champion’.
A current Dates-n-Mates Champion says:
“We help each other out, it’s not all about one person. It’s getting everyone involved, some people just need a little encouragement.
