None of our work would be possible without our volunteers, a diverse group of people bringing deep knowledge, extensive experience and strong skills to enhance and develop our services to people in need. Crew volunteer peer educators provided 1,980 hours of work 2019-20. According to Volunteer Scotland this is the equivalent of 56.57 full time working weeks, which multiplied by the mean weekly wage for the City of Edinburgh (£623.30), gives an overall economic value alone of £35,261.
