"The Volunteer Network had changed my life in the way it's made me grown up, gave me responsibilities, helped me see life through other people's eyes I've met so many people that in my day to day life I'd never personally communicate with but have ended up being life long pals."
"I had lost touch with the working world & had been isolated from friends for all that time! Being part of this charity meant over time that I could gain my confidence back with people & gain some extra qualifications & build up my cv."
Thank you for all the great memories and the amazing friends I've made along the way.
" I loved being part of the Volunteer Network! The best bit was getting to meet such a diverse range of people from all around Somerset."
" I still recall the fun and laughter and there are many experiences I don’t feel I would have gotten without them."
"The Volunteer Network is tremendously important and we have found them to be incredibly helpful to us."
"Definitely up there with one of the best volunteer groups I’ve worked with and would love to have you back at future events."
My experience with the Volunteer Network also definitely helped me get my first proper part time job.
"They encouraged me to be happy as well as encouraged me to accept myself because when I was a volunteer I was heavily medicated due to my Mental Health Illness, but they saw past that, they made me feel like I was like anyone else."
"TVN has helped me gain amazing skills which I have used throughout a professional career, I would personally like to thank everyone over the years who has supported this great and wonderful charity the work you guys do is fantastic, thank you for all the great memories and the amazing friends I've made along the way."
"I shared one of my proudest moments in my life with these guys, winning Pride of Somerset!"
It's so rewarding to see some of the young people who start out shy, unmotivated and unsure of themselves turn into valuable members of the group who take initiative, confidently interact with the public and blossom into competent and helpful team members
" I hope the Volunteer Network will be around for many years to come to provide these opportunities to future generations. Thank you Volunteer Network!"
