ValueYou is a charity which provides free discount cards to long serving volunteers who have volunteered over 100 hours within the past 12 months. The card is free and is a way of saying ‘Thank you’ to volunteers for their hard work.
The ValueYou initiative started in London, where it currently runs in eighteen Boroughs with more than 650 independent high street businesses taking part. There are a wide range of independent businesses offering discounts, such as cafes, hair & beauty salons, book stores and much more, which offer a minimum of 10% discount to cardholders, and several businesses that offer discounts of up to 25% off on online purchases.
Volunteers can use our online application forms if they volunteer for a registered charity, a hospital, school, library, parks service and some non-registered charitable organisations: To apply, you will need to provide the email address for the person that manages your volunteering to use the online application form. If you don’t have this email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Our initiative partners with local independent businesses who want to give by offering a discount to our volunteer members. Membership is free of charge, and our work helps to encourage people to shop locally and support small businesses. We first launched the scheme in Ealing in February 2014, and we’ve steadily been adding new areas to where our services are being offered.
