Fundraising is key to ensuring FSN continue to support local children and families so why not get involved and join the volunteer team at FSN to help make a difference in our community
 
What do fundraising volunteers do at FSN?
There are a wide range of roles from helping with the annual golf day, open gardens, quiz nights, shop collections, coffee mornings, lunches and high teas to administration and promoting FSN within the community. Volunteers also run their own events for example, open gardens, coffee mornings, half-marathons, music evenings and art and environmental talks
 
Who is volunteering for?
Anyone who has free time to spare whether for a one off event or regular attendance, there is no minimum or maximum time, just what fits in with your own life. Every hour will help our Events Team fundraise for FSN.

Our clients have reported they have found them interesting, informative and easy to engage with due to the welcoming and supportive staff and informal setting

Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!
“I have come along and attended various courses at FSN but also attended the computer and Health and Wellbeing drop ins. Coming here as made me in such a better place, everyone is so supportive! I feel so much more confident, I have found myself again. I love it here!

It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
My little girl has really benefitted from being with other young people in similar situations. She knows she is not alone and it's ok to be sad and angry. She talks about Nanna now a lot more"
"Dragonflies has made an invaluable difference to my son, I think he was in a dark place and Dragonflies has let the light shine for him again
