  • Volunteering means that Zephyr’s can make best use the money donated to us to pay for costly yet essential services, eg. counselling, workshop facilitators, printing and distribution costs, website maintenance, staffing and HR
  • Volunteering strengthens the bond of Zephyr’s community and helps us support each other in an organised framework based on love and kindness 
  • Volunteering means we have community ambassadors who represent Zephyr’s and it’s ethos in the wider world
