Our volunteers are essential and valued members of the SLRA team. We provide induction and ongoing training as well as regular group and one to one supervision. Many of those who volunteer for us gain valuable knowledge and skills for future learning or employment.

Volunteering with SLRA has been a privilege. I have found my work stimulating, thought-provoking and most of all, rewarding.
