Volunteering

Benefits of volunteering

Volunteering is about giving your time or skills without getting paid for it in any way. It is an ideal opportunity to become directly involved in making a positive difference to the community and the environment.

There are many reasons why people choose to volunteer:

  • to gain skills/experience to change careers or get a job
  • to support an issue that you or a member of your family have been affected by
  • to gain confidence in returning to the workplace
  • to improve confidence or self-esteem
  • to give something back to your community
