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
