Without a doubt, the last 12 months have been exceptional as well as challenging times for all of us. However, throughout these times there have been people from our local communities, often unseen in the background, working hard to help and support members of the local community.
Volunteers and good neighbours across our community have provided their time and energy in lots of different and inspiring ways. From providing regular telephone calls to people lonely and isolated, running online virtual coffee mornings, fetching shopping and prescriptions for neighbours, helping out at food banks, through to offering ongoing support to families and young people in crisis. The list of good deeds and acts of kindness to help people get through the challenges we have faced due to COVID-19 is endless.
Compass Support would like to celebrate and honour the inspiring work local people and volunteers have completed in their community. The Compass Support Volunteer Awards 2021 is a way for us to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ for their achievements during the last year and recognise the huge role they have played within the community
