    Volunteers week started on the 1st of June and I have had cause to pause and reflect during the week on both my own career and the way in which volunteering has enriched it. I have also thought about the many ways that volunteering within Change Grow Live (CGL) and within our field more generally, adds so much value to the work we do and helps to transform people’s lives on a daily basis.

    At Change Grow Live (CGL) we truly value our volunteers. Sometimes people think that because volunteering is unpaid you won’t learn any new skills or the roles you’ll be given are very basic, but that is so far from the truth. We treat our volunteers in exactly the same way as our staff – so that means a dedicated supervisor to provide guidance; monthly one-to-one supervisions to discuss overall wellbeing and progression; comprehensive training both before and during the placement; and the opportunity at some of our projects to gain nationally recognised qualifications.

    Finally after years of cajoling and avoidance on my part – this is the first in what should become a series of blogs from me, as part of Change Grow Live (CGL) and our work within the areas of recovery, resilience and rehabilitation. We’ve existed as the Sussex Association for the Rehabilitation of Offenders since the early 1970s and as CRI since 2000 – working hard to help people maximise their potential, contribute to their communities and for many, to break away from criminal activity.
