Shorter shifts

Many shifts are 12 hours and are also at least half an hour away to get too. It would be good to have shorter shifts to enable more volunteers to help out, and be able to fit volunteering in between working full time and childcare commitments without being exhausted.

    I agree the shifts should be shorter. After 46 years as a volunteer I stopped as the only duties in London were far away and all day

    I can not manage 12 hour shifts + hours of travel due to care and work commitments. If shifts were 6 hours for 2 staff, this would be so much easier to manage and encourage much more people to apply and remain with the BRC
