“I cannot recommend it enough. The Dates-n-Mates team and members are so supportive – It’s added a whole new dynamic to my life and given me something I can really be proud of.” – Event Volunteer, Jess

"Dates-n-Mates could not be the amazing project it is without a strong team of volunteers. Their energy, enthusiasm and dedication to support our staff, events and members has a huge impact on the success of our project. Each and every volunteer gives their time generously, to not only provide support but to share their skills, talents, compassion and most of all, friendship.
We couldn't do what we do without our volunteers!"

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.
