We are hoping to build up this page with volunteering opportunities but we can only do this with your help.
If you have any volunteering opportunities for service users or ex service users please email the details to Roni on email@example.com.
Adfam has recently produced a new toolkit – ‘Real voices in volunteering’ which is dedicated to supporting volunteering around families, drugs and alcohol. It is viewable on our site here (pdf). It has been produced with extensive consultation with volunteers and volunteer managers and contains the background information, policy and legislation that cover the topic. It has been produced as part of the Drug Sector Partnership.
If you have any questions on it or any other aspect of Adfam’s work please contact Oliver Standing, (details below).
