Our Impact

Our success comes from having a real and positive impact on the lives of the people we support.

Every day we accomplish small and large triumphs in equal measure; helping people rebuild family ties, supporting a young person leaving care into their new home, giving someone who has been out of work for months, or years, the confidence to go to an interview – small steps that make a huge difference. 

+ We currently work with around 6,300 service users a year (4,160 Resettlement & Rehabilitation, 2,140 Strengthening Communities).

+ We fully train, register and deploy 380 new volunteers per year.

+ Each Sova volunteer gives an average of 83 hours of their time to Sova per year.

+ In the 2016/2017 financial year volunteers gave 66,235 hours to Sova –effectively a donation of £1 Million  if paid at median wage

+ We currently have over 800 fully recruited and trained volunteers supporting our delivery; with many more currently undergoing recruitment

+ We delivered over 15,500 mentoring sessions last year –that's 42 per day!

+ An independent analysis of our work shows that every £1 Sova spends on volunteering, there is an estimated societal saving of £11.

But don’t take our word for it. Judge for yourselves.
