Volunteers, aged 14+, have been recruited through the outreach programme, colleges and partnerships and through membership of the local volunteer centre.

Volunteers are provided with opportunities to enhance service delivery alongside staff by supporting the outreach team, delivering education sessions, key working clients, group work and attending community events . All volunteers are provided with access to an induction and training programme which covers safeguarding, health, skills sharing sessions and Addaction’s E Learning Programme.
