Central Liverpool Credit Union wouldn’t function if it wasn’t for our hard-working volunteers.
In fact, the Credit Union wouldn’t have got off the ground at all without unpaid help. Our founders spent hundreds – if not thousands – of hours planning, training, applying and setting up Central Liverpool Credit Union.
Today our volunteers help us staff our branches and run the office. All of our Directors are unpaid volunteers as well.
It’s human nature to feel good after helping someone out. Volunteering can also help people gain valuable new skills and experiences, boosting confidence.
Over 70% of volunteers would recommend the experience to a friend.
In 2017/18, 20.1 million people in the UK volunteered formally at least once a year. 11.8 million people did so at least once a month.
At the beginning of June, we celebrate this hard work through volunteers week. Everyone that’s helped us out is invited to our garden party later this week.
And we continue to look for volunteers. We always need help running reception and teller positions.
You don’t need to be retired to help out! Over one third of people aged 16 to 40 volunteer on a regular basis.
