Recognising our volunteers’ invaluable contributions
Alongside The Elizabeth Foundation’s skilled and experienced staff team, we depend on volunteers to help us provide our services for young deaf children. Using volunteers in this ways means we are able to achieve the maximum impact with the income we have available.
Our volunteers help us in a wide range of ways – from assisting in the classrooms and making teaching resources to providing fundraising and administrative support.
Many of our volunteers are able to commit time on a regular basis, whilst others donate their time to support specific fundraising events (such as our summer fayre and Christmas bazaar). All members of our Board of Trustees are also volunteers.
