The 12th Day of Volunteering


Our volunteers are amazing – in celebration of what they do, we’ve been doing a #12DaysofVolunteering campaign on our social media channels. We’re going to continue to share what our volunteers do and how they feel about their roles but, for now, here are a few words from our appropriate adults (AAs):

Sue – Aylsham – AA for 16 years: “it could be any one of us or our loved ones in the PIC (police investigation centre). I really just want to give something back at a time when people are at their most vulnerable

Jackie – Kings Lynn: “I love being able to help whatever the situation

Julie – Wymondham – AA for 3 years: “I volunteered during lockdown and still do. The role is very interesting and different every time – I also love our regular socials

Roger – Wymondham and Aylsham AA: “Love the role, never a dull moment!”

Fiona – Wymondham AA: “being an AA means being there to support during a police interview. Those that our vulnerable in custody that I have supported are usually relieved when I arrive and to be able to give comfort in a time of crisis means I enjoy being able to give something back”

Brian – Kings Lynn, Wymondham, Great Yarmouth, Bury St Edmunds AA: “I have been an AA for 11 years and I’m just there to help people
