Our Team of volunteers
Our volunteers offer much valued support to our teams.
Volunteers help in a variety of ways including admin support within our head office, at our community events or even out on projects with young people.
Could you help and volunteer for CHEXS?
“I have found working with young men and women at CHEXS to be very rewarding. Outside the school environment, they often shine and surprise both themselves and their support staff with what they are able to achieve. These fine young people see that they can make better choices in life. They gain in both maturity and confidence through the activities we expose them to and it is such a pleasure to witness this transformation.”
“I volunteer for CHEXS on a weekly basis. I feel the work CHEXS does is very important for the children as well as all members of the families they are connected with. By volunteering, I can help in a small way with this work. It’s lovely when there is feedback saying how much difference CHEXS has made to peoples lives.”
