A message from the Joint Chief Executives

"Volunteering is the glue that holds St Christopher’s together. Please know that individually and collectively you make a big difference to the people supported by St Christopher’s.

From knitting chicks to sorting donations in our shops to counselling family members or supporting admin teams – whatever role you decide is the one for you, thank you so much for supporting St Christopher’s."
