Sharing Skills and Passions Through our Refreshed Volunteers Policy

This week we recognise Volunteers Week (2 June -9 June), by relaunching our Volunteers Policy.

The diversity of our colleagues skills and talents makes St Anne’s a great place to work. Our refreshed policy will enable our colleagues to share their passion and skills by having a choice to be more involved within the communities we support, through paid volunteering activities at a St Anne’s service. 

Mario Caswell Deputy Chief Executive said:

“Our new Volunteer Policy is a great opportunity for us to reach the amazing untapped potential and skills of our colleagues and to celebrate what it means to work for St Anne’s, in terms of colleague appreciation and community involvement. We hope many colleagues take up this opportunity”.


Colleagues from our Business Development and Maintenance Teams were proud to work alongside Evelyn Partners in May to prepare the gardens at our Lonsdale Close service for summer.

Amy Tolliday, Service Development Manager for St Anne’s said:

“Evelyn Partners volunteered for us to create an instant impact in a garden environment.  Our residents chose the new spot for the bench, provided by Evelyn. They can now enjoy a Leeds cityscape from the comfort of their back gardens! Evelyn’s support has maximised our resident’s facilities this summer”.
