Volunteering is all about making a difference – to other people, to communities, to you!
People choose to volunteer for many different reasons. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people.
You can give as little as an hour a month or as much time as you like. For most opportunities you don’t need qualifications and many organisations provide you with training for your volunteer role.
There are literally hundreds of things you could do from helping at a day centre or art club to pet fostering and gardening. You can even volunteer from home, online or from your smart phone. There really is something to suit everyone.
