Acis commits to Volunteers’ Week

Big tidy team

We are aiming to give up a collective one thousand hours of time to our communities this year. 

As part of Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June), the organisation is recognising the strengths and individualism of our workforce to launch our own ‘Volunteers’ Bank’ which captures the amount of ‘free’ hours its people dedicate to charity and voluntary work.

We will log the voluntary events and initiatives that go beyond our basic landlord responsibilities and make a positive difference to our customers’ lives

Jill Dickson, our Volunteer and Employability Coordinator, said: “We know that many of our people go above and beyond for our customers, and have done so for many years. This ‘bank’ will help us to celebrate exactly how much we do and demonstrate the wider social impact we have on our communities.

“Our people are about more than their job roles. We want to celebrate the individualism, skills and diversity of our workforce by capturing this information and empowering our people to make a difference outside of their normal work duties to directly benefit our customers and the communities in which we serve.”

In the last year, our people have volunteered at local festivals, ran community initiatives in their spare time, packed and delivered Christmas hampers and tidied up local estates.

We calculated, through the Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust, that our ‘wrap around’ services – those that go beyond basic landlord responsibilities – were worth £2 million in social impact.

We will be taking part in numerous events to celebrate Volunteers’ Week, including tidying the gardens of some of their tenants, training people in emergency first-aid and hosting an afternoon tea party at one of its sheltered accommodation schemes.
