“We aim to double the number of volunteers in CHSS by 2021 in order to reach everybody who needs us and to help us to raise funds.”(No Life Half Lived, 2018)
Volunteering is a fundamental part of the CHSS structure, integral in facilitating the work of CHSS by supporting innovation across the charity, the expansion of retail outlets and service provision. Contributing a net economic benefit of £1.5 million to CHSS in 2017/18, volunteers will form a substantial part of the Charity’s ability to deliver No Live Half Lived (NLHL) for those experiencing the conditions we support. Volunteers are therefore vital to the success of the organisation’s strategic goals. An expansion in the number of people we help can’t happen without a corresponding increase in volunteer numbers.
The VSG will take into consideration the political, economic, social and cultural contexts which influence volunteering, ensuring constructive benchmarking against the impact of volunteering on: the volunteers; service users; CHSS as an organisation; the wider Scottish community.
