A DISCOUNT CARD FOR PEOPLE WHO VOLUNTEER
ValueYou is a simple idea for helping local businesses to support volunteering in their communities.
- ValueYou gives a discount card to volunteers
- We then ask local businesses to give these volunteers a discount.
- It gives free publicity to local businesses and encourages local customers to shop local.
What are the benefits for Volunteers?
This scheme rewards volunteers who have volunteered for a total of 100 hours or more, over the last 12 months. Your contribution to the community has been recognised and you are eligible for a ValueYou card.
Volunteers who are eligible for a card will receive a card which gives you a discount of 10% or more at a wide range of shops across Walsall - a way of the community saying "Thank You!"

What are the benefits for Businesses?
The ValueYou scheme is easy way for small local business to be involved with the volunteers who make Walsall’s communities. ValueYou provides an excellent opportunity to give back to the very people who donate their time for free.
Each business who commits to the scheme will have their details included on the ValueYou webpage. Not only does this offer each business who takes part free promotion, but it also ensures our ValueYou volunteers can find you easily.
You get your own free page on our website and we add you to the maps and lists we give to volunteers. We will also give you an optional window sticker and a small display card.
What discounts do we need to offer?
To join the scheme you need to offer a minimum 10% discount. This should be on all purchases but doesn't need to include any existing offers or discounts. There are some very limited exclusions you can make from the discount but we'll need to discuss this with you.
Some business owners are very keen to support volunteering and hundreds of businesses that join the scheme also donate gift vouchers to volunteers as their way of saying a special thank you.They usually donate one gift a month and each volunteer gets to choose which one they would like when they join. Gifts depend on the type of business. Cafes might offer tea and cake for a volunteer, for example.
There is no contract and you can stop taking part at any time. We use a good will agreement to make sure you, the volunteers and ValueYou are clear about how the scheme works. But there are no charges or fees of any kind.
