This month Goldbridge celebrated National Volunteer Week with a BBQ lunch and certificate ceremony. The event took place at the residential Therapeutic Community (TC) where staff, residents, and our volunteers attended.

This year’s theme was ‘The Change Makers’ and focused on a celebration of volunteer’s power to drive change. Goldbridge’s CEO, Bernice Smith presented an in-depth speech reflecting on the positive impact our volunteers made on the service.

Bernice also explored the different types of ‘change-makers’ and how they were represented in our volunteers. This was followed by a presentation of certificates to our volunteers by The Transition Coordinator – Nathanael Martin.

These were well received and appreciated. Goldbridge has engaged volunteers for over 30 years and continues to value our volunteers, their altruistic contributions, and role-modelling.
