Organisations throughout the country recently marked the 30th anniversary of Volunteers Week, an annual celebration of the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. Nowhere is that contribution more keenly felt than at Home-Start Aberdeen, a city-based charity that provides vulnerable families with emotional and practical support in the home. In the past year alone, its 100 volunteers have provided over 200 local families with approximately 17,500 hours of support. Volunteers are at the heart of the service that Home-Start Aberdeen delivers. Families in need of help, who may be dealing with issues of isolation, ill health, disability or other challenges, are referred to the charity, mainly via community health professionals. These referred families are then carefully matched with a trained Home-Start Aberdeen volunteer, who visits them weekly. “Without our volunteers, Home-Start Aberdeen simply would not exist,” said Georgette Cobban, scheme manager, Home-Start Aberdeen.
