The ValueYou scheme provides a discount card to people who have volunteered for over 100 hours within the past 12 months. The card can be used at over 500 independent businesses and is completely free. Each volunteer can also choose a gift voucher donated by an independent business. By registering volunteers can also opt to receive a 100 hour volunteering certificate issued by Volunteering Barnet.
A charitable scheme (ValueYou) is available in Hounslow, providing a discount card to people that volunteer 100 hours or more for a charity, hospital, school or not for profit library or park service in the Borough.
The cards can be used at over 500 independent businesses across London, such as shops, cafes, florists, butchers, dry cleaners and key cutters. The card is completely free-there are no charges or fees of any kind. Each volunteer can also choose a gift voucher donated by an independent business.
We are very grateful to Hounslow Council for providing funding to support the scheme. The scheme was originally set up in Ealing by a junior Doctor as a way of saying thank you to hospital volunteers and expanded since. Volunteering Hounslow is working with ValueYou to administer the scheme and also providing a 100 hour certificate to recognise volunteers.
