It’s Monday 1st June and not only is this week Volunteers’ Week but Monday is the day that the whole country celebrates volunteers who provide listening and support, how wonderfully appropriate.
Thank you to each and every Chrysalis volunteerToday I don’t want to just celebrate one of our fantastic volunteers but I would like to recognise each and every one of them. Those who work delivering our core services: our counsellors, facilitators and keyworkers, and those who are behind the scenes making sure that everything goes to plan: our trustees; our IT support; business advisers and all the others who help us along the way.
Today I want to share with you the names of every wonderful person who volunteers for Chrysalis

We have made the most incredible transition to online working and are delivering an essential lifeline to people who are at a vulnerable point in their lives. But don’t take my word for it – I’d rather you heard Natalie
So Thank You Chrysalis volunteers, it is a privilege and a pleasure to work with you all
