On Wednesday, Priory welcomed Alison Coates of the Royal Voluntary Service to talk about the benefits of volunteering.

Alison is a platinum champion for the RVS and spoke to Year 10 pupils in an assembly on the subject of giving up your time to helps others.

The volunteering charity supports the NHS and people in need in every corner of Britain. Their volunteers work with healthcare teams and in communities providing practical help and emotional support when people are struggling to cope.  There are other sources dedicated to helping people find volunteering opportunities and Alison spoke about how to look for these too.

Pupils learnt about why volunteering could be for them.

  • Meeting new people and connecting with the community
  • Learn new skills
  • Improve your wellbeing
  • Make a difference
  • Give something back

A leaflet is available with further information about volunteering and this, as well as links, will be added to the Year 10 Teams.  If anyone would like to explore any ideas they have for volunteering then they should speak with Ms Smith, Lead Practioner for Personal Development.
