Volunteer group web

We have been running pilot structured workshops with 8, 16 or 40 week placements since 2016. Adults with complex needs work as a team in a simulated warehouse environment to process products before distribution to other vulnerable people.

The aim is to build confidence, dignity and self-esteem and gain work skills.

Watch a short, touching film about it here.

The incredible and humbling thing is watching our beneficiaries make a cup of tea for themselves and others for the first time; travel solo for the first time; count past 20 for the first time. They laugh with each other, challenge each other, and drink tea with each other, all the while sorting and packing boxes of goods to deliver to a family or person that they are helping. Rather than being helped, they are helping others. The power and effect of that notion cannot be underestimated.

One of our beneficiaries had this to say, "It has kept me active and made me believe I can do more. I can see myself doing something better than I believed I was capable of."

And another said this, "I enjoyed being at Giving World. I think it's great that I have helped people... I have noticed that I got quicker, I never thought I would because I’m normally quite slow but I didn’t want to let the team down. I'm also really proud of myself because I got the bus on my own here."

Here at Giving World we aim to create a circle of value and change to families and communities in need.

Businesses donate their surplus goods, benefiting those in deprivation. Meanwhile the courses give our volunteers self-worth and employability skills.

Employability skills can be used locally by business, and the whole circle of value starts again. Simple really...
