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 5,440 service users a year (3,490 Resettlement & Rehabilitation, 1,950 Strengthening Communities).

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

+ Each Sova volunteer gives an average of 51 hours of their time to Sova per year.

+ In the 2015/2016 financial year volunteers gave 79,590 hours to Sova –effectively a donation of £1.2 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 10,200 mentoring sessions last year –that's 28 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.
