Volunteering can play an important part in getting people ready for training and employment.
Motiv8 has had lots of participants who have signed up for the Volition Service, based at Manchester Cathedral, as part of their Motiv8 journey.
Volition is a volunteering service that supports people who want to work and helps them get the support they need to move on to bigger and better things.
Volunteers are welcome to stay with them as long as they want to and, in fact, some volunteers who have found a job as a result of their support, still volunteer with the Volition Service to mentor other volunteers. There are no goodbyes!
