EDF Energy - Torness
"Torness power station, as part of EDF Energy, is delighted to support the fantastic work carried out by our volunteers within the Children's Hearings System. We are very proud of our Children’s Panel members who give up their own valuable time to utilise their own experiences and knowledge to help look after some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the country.
"As a major employer in the area, we feel strongly it is our role to encourage and recognise our employees who volunteer for the Children’s Panel.
"There is no doubt that the training that panel members receive is of a very high quality. Similarly, the experience they gain from participating provides them with skills and attributes that are invaluable in the work place, hence the business also gains. For example, we believe that our volunteers have enhanced their communication and decision making skills. They also strengthen their relationship building ability and often bring a more empathetic approach to situations.
"We are fully committed to continuing to support what we consider to be an excellent cause. We were pleased to host a roadshow recently to stimulate interest in new applicants and strongly encourage more of our colleagues who may be interested to apply."
