Inspiring volunteering within the Cheshire East community is one of the CVS mission statements. We do a lot of work with our CVS Member organisations and the general public in promoting and encouraging people into volunteering, part of this work includes hosting a volunteer recruitment area on our website. Here members of the public can register their interest in volunteering within the local community and apply for advertised roles.
'Finding new volunteers for our lunch club in Knutsford is notoriously difficult. I was therefore delighted to get two enquires in the first week of using the new CVS provided Volunteer recruitment pages and a further enquiry the following week. All these enquiries are being followed up and are all looking very positive. This response far exceeds anything I have experienced before from previous attempts to publicise our volunteer vacancies'
- Yvonne Baker, St John's Wood Lunch Club, Knutsford
