Thank you to our wonderful volunteers.
Last year the volunteers in our NILS network provided the equivalent working hours of 133 fulltime employees. They’ve now helped us reach nearly 400,000 people who are financially excluded.
‘Give happy, live happy’ is this year’s theme for National Volunteer Week, based on research that reveals volunteers live happier, healthier lives. People who volunteer are healthier, fitter, more mentally alert and more socially connected than people who do not.

Although our founder, St Mary Euphrasia, lived in the early 19th Century within a patriarchal church and society and without an understanding of gender justice as we know it, her words and writings show a woman grounded in teachings of equal respect for women and men.
