Volunteers Week 2018 (1-7 June) is here and we are recommitting our pledge to volunteering for the coming year.
Last year, we smashed our target of giving a collective 1,000 hours of time to our communities.
And now we are recommitting our pledge to go beyond our basic landlord responsibilities and continue to make a difference to our customers’ lives.
In the last year, Acis and the wider community came together to get involved in various projects such as ‘Firecracker’, ‘Love Your Street’, coffee mornings and so much more.
Jill Dickson, our Volunteer and Employability Coordinator, said: “We are delighted to have achieved our goal of 1,000 hours last year and we are looking forward to doing the same again.
“Our aim remains to celebrate the individualism, skills and diversity of our workforce by 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.”
Our commitment to the scheme begins on Wednesday 5 June with a Volunteers Fair at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre and will be followed by many more events and opportunities.
