Volunteering and Employment

Since being a Listen Up! Community reporter is an volunteer role,¬† this month we have documented¬† what it’s like to volunteer on a day to day basis either within Groundswell or elsewhere. We wanted to shine a light on all the wonderful and essential work that volunteers do!

‘Hear Our Stories’ was published in collaboration with Together in The UK, and Victoria Press last year.
