Today marks the start of volunteer week http://volunteersweek.org
Here at BYHP we are going to mark the 12 days of the week (yes 12 - figure that out!) with a series of blogs detailing how we work with volunteers, what they do for us and the benefits they bring us and volunteering brings them.
Although we have a team of paid employees working at BYHP many of us started our involvement through volunteering and we are so glad we did!
There is a lot of research about both the level of volunteering in the UK and also the benefits - both physical and psychological - of helping others.

Or more simply put by Action for Happiness
Of course, we are always looking for new volunteers to add to the amazing group who already help us and if you would like to volunteer at BYHP we have some specific roles which are detailed on our website.
For opportunities generally around Banbury see:
Thanks to all of our fab volunteers - you are amazing !
Our blog is a great way to stay up to date with current events and projects, stories from our young people and the general goings on at BYHP.
