E-QUIP seeks to work with volunteers to carry out its work. Many people have been involved in the teams that make these projects happen and we are always looking for others who have a desire to get involved. If you would like to know more about working with E-QUIP and volunteering in some way then please get in touch and let us know how you can help.
