I voted yes, I must have done well over 170 hours at Samaritans, and as a voluntary teaching assistant. I also did voluntary work at a acute mental health unit. - Without volunteers there would be very much fewer third sector services. leaving many many people with unmet needs (and possibly dead). -...
