At SLATE our volunteers are at the heart of our organisation.
We are very proud to have passed Leeds’ Volunteering Kitemark. We passed with no recommendations from the steering group and the assessors were particularity impressed with the quality of the information we provided. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who have helped us to make and retain the standards that secured us this recognition kitemark.
Every year we are lucky enough to go on a residential weekend at the Northern College
In 2014 the volunteers developed our mission:
“Caring for The People, The Community and The Planet”
Projects and Courses:
Our volunteers have also been taking part in two projects ‘We are SLATE’ photography class run by People Matters and ‘Recycled Life, New Life’ art project which is being funded by Leeds Inspired.
