Laura here the Volunteer Lead for SSNMH in this issue I thought I would give you an update on the current new way of working.

When we locked down in March I had to think quickly and I was lucky to be able to work from home and in turn create ‘work from home’ opportunities.

We have been so grateful for all the volunteers from up and down the country that have contributed to our Social Isolation Project, Mental Health Awareness Week, Kindness Idols and now I new Social media promoter roles.

The Social Isolation Project had an amazing response, the idea was to create a game to use in the community with vulnerable people.   We had 36 responses for this project alone.

I suppose what we are seeing in the volunteering community is a new more flexible way of working, I am looking forward to meeting people face to face but this has been a great experience and I’ve had the privilege of working with lots of great people.
