Support Awards 2018 this month.
Director of Housing, Assets and Communities, said: “Volunteers truly bring huge
value to the lives of our customers and we are proud to be able to offer
volunteers the opportunity to work with us.”
volunteers contributed a total of 3,883 hours of help across Coastline’s
homeless service in Camborne, its Miners Court Extra Care scheme in Redruth and
the housing charity’s main office.
“Many of our volunteers have been through our homeless service as clients
themselves, so really do have a first-hand appreciation of how dramatically
lives can be turned around. They are often incredibly keen to give back and
lend a helping hand to other people going through the same situation. It’s hard
to emphasise just how important that help can be.”
The company was
reaccredited with Investing in Volunteers after undergoing a rigorous
inspection and review.
