Volition – Suspended until end of April

Dear Volition Community

In the interests of volunteer and staff safety at this time, the decision has been taken to suspend office and volunteering operations at Volition until 01 May 2020. Do not attend for any volunteering or training sessions from today.  Our information sessions for new starters are also cancelled.

We will be working remotely and are still available to answer any questions and support in any way possible, albeit by telephone and email.

We will be in touch to keep you informed of when we will be operational again.

May I take this opportunity on behalf of the entire team to wish you all a safe passage over the next few weeks. We count you all as friends. Please do keep in touch and drop me a line at any time.
