We say goodbye, thank you and Happy Retirement to Elaine

Elaine joined Step Together Volunteering as a Volunteer Project Manager, supporting veterans and armed forces personnel who are wounded, injured or sick in January 2014. Over the past 7 and a half years she has been an incredible ambassador for the organisation and has shown unwavering commitment to her clients. The last 6 months have seen Elaine bring together a group of veterans and civilians to volunteer on the recreation of a Bronze Age Roundhouse at Butser Ancient Farm. This project has been a labour of love for Elaine, and she extended her retirement date not once, but twice, in order to see the project through to its completion. Almost 40 volunteers contributed 1144 volunteer hours to complete the build - all benefitting from a sense of teamwork, camaraderie and, of course, Elaine's support. The project's completion was celebrated at a launch day on 9th October, with Professor Alice Roberts. It has been a wonderful project for Elaine to wrap up her contribution to Step Together and our clients.

We wish Elaine a long and happy retirement, filled with adventures in her camper van.

Thank you for all you've done.


Silver Award Winner!

CEO Anna-Clare Temple and Operations Manager Deborah Saw were delighted to attend Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant's Awards on Tuesday 28th September to receive our Silver Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. The award was presented by Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Bristol, Peaches Golding OBE CStJ. The event also saw Certificates for Meritorious Service awarded to members of the Reserve Forces and Cadet Service, and the appointment of Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant's Cadets for the year. Step Together Volunteering were one of just three organisations to have been recognised by the Armed Forces Covenant at this silver level.

The Silver Award recognises those employers who have signed an Armed Forces Covenant and who actively demonstrate support for the Armed Forces by employing at least one member of the Defence Community, be that a Reservist, Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer, Service Leaver or military spouse.

In addition to having supported members of the Armed Forces Community for over 10 years, Step Together Volunteering also has 5 members of staff who have served in the Armed Forces, one of whom is currently mobilised as an Active Reservist.


We have a new logo and look. We are updating our website which will mean reduced functionality for a short while as the changes are made. Rest assured that we at Step Together Volunteering will continue to support our clients in our normal fashion.

We’re a charity that helps the most vulnerable people – people who can’t find help elsewhere. We never give up on our clients. We support them until they have the self-confidence and skills they need to look forward to a better, brighter future. And for many, that starts with volunteering.
