Team Tŷ Hafan Volunteers

We understand that Coronavirus is a worrying time for us all and while there continues to be an unprecedented level of disruption to daily life, we are working hard across the charity to ensure that we are there for our volunteers, staff and supporters.We want to say a big thank you to all our volunteers for sticking by us during this difficult time. We can appreciate that volunteering across the charity looks very different and we want to re-assure you that we are doing everything that we can to ensure that when you return to volunteer with us that you are happy and comfortable that we are looking after you when you are volunteering.

We realise that some of our volunteers may be shielding again and some of you may not feel comfortable returning to volunteering just yet, please do contact us if you would like to discuss this in more detail, we are here to support you and to answer any questions you may have.

We are always looking to extend the wonderful team of volunteers, so if you have a few hours a week to support Tŷ Hafan, do get in touch. We have many opportunities across the charity and when the restrictions allow, we will be re-introducing more of our volunteers back into our shops and departments. We want to say a big thank you to our volunteers for sticking by us during this difficult time. We appreciate that for many, activity has been at a standstill, but we’ll absolutely need you by our side more than ever once activity resumes and we’re back on track.

Our volunteer development manager, Debbie, will be in touch with you with any updates, but please get in touch in the meantime if you have any questions: Debbie.gibby@tyhafan.org
