Aberdeen Cyrenians: Volunteers’ Week 2023

Volunteers' Week 2023

June 2023

For Volunteers’ Week 2023 we worked in partnership with Aberdeen Cyrenians to produce this film showcasing the work and dedication of four of their regular volunteers. 

Aberdeen Cyrenians work continuously to shift perceptions and change the outlook on homelessness and vulnerability in society — the reality often differs drastically from the ‘labels’ that people use when thinking of those who need support. Not accepting the current perception of homelessness is something that underpins Aberdeen Cyrenians’ work and how they communicate. Their approach puts the reality of these situations front and centre. 

The theme of Volunteers’ Week 2023 – Celebrate and Inspire – is reflected in this film and the words of the volunteers featured.
