RAUK is one of the projects run by the Good Services Bureau. We hope to improve people's lives personally and within their communities by providing information, referrals and support to residents and residents' associations around the country, as well as private individuals who may need some guidance. Whilst this is a massive task to undertake, we know it's not impossible because as Muhammad Ali once said:
'Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live
in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.'
All our work is done on a voluntary basis but in order to be more effective we would welcome more volunteers based around the UK to help us, as at this time we have only three part-time people working on this project and loads to do. This work might be of particular interest to you if you are unemployed or disabled and housebound most of the time. The main criteria is that you speak, read and write English well and have access to a computer and telephone.
