Volunteers' Week: 'Volunteers are absolutely integral to our work' (video)

Our Chief Executive Matthew Reed is a huge champion of the power and value of volunteering and wanted to send a personal message to all of our volunteers for Volunteers' Week.

He said: ‘I was a volunteer with The Children’s Society for years before I became chief executive and I will continue to be a volunteer with this fantastic organisation when I am no longer a member of staff. Volunteers are absolutely integral to our work and without their incredible contribution all over the country we could not have anywhere near the impact that we do.

'This Volunteers' Week I would like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you who volunteers your time, energy and skills to support our mission. You are helping us to change the lives of this country’s most disadvantaged children and young people.’
