Three cheers for the volunteers!





Coastline Housing has been reaccredited with the national Investing in Volunteers accolade for another three years.

The housing charity, based in Redruth, has around 20 volunteers working within its services at any one time, carrying out a variety of tasks to support clients and staff.

Coastline’s Partner Programme, for volunteers at its Homeless Service, was also named winner of the Inclusive Activities Award at the Cornwall and IOS Care and Support Awards 2018 this month.

Louise Beard, Director of Housing, Assets and Communities, said: “Volunteers truly bring huge value to the lives of our customers and we are proud to be able to offer volunteers the opportunity to work with us.”

Last year, volunteers contributed a total of 3,883 hours of help across Coastline’s homeless service in Camborne, its Miners Court Extra Care scheme in Redruth and the housing charity’s main office.

Louise adds: “Many of our volunteers have been through our homeless service as clients themselves, so really do have a first-hand appreciation of how dramatically lives can be turned around. They are often incredibly keen to give back and lend a helping hand to other people going through the same situation. It’s hard to emphasise just how important that help can be.”

The company was reaccredited with Investing in Volunteers after undergoing a rigorous inspection and review.

Staff and volunteers came together to celebrate the good news with a slice of celebratory cake.
