History of Volunteering at Open Support

History of Volunteering at Open Support

Volunteers have been a vital and integral part of this organisation since its inception in 1990 and they remain central to our ability to deliver the services we provide to assist the vulnerable in society.

Volunteers currently play key roles in assisting service delivery across all service and operational areas of Open Support, with the exception of our domestic violence crisis accommodation service, Safe Haven. Currently we have just over 200 volunteers and around 30 paid staff.
