Thinking about volunteering? Here’s some great food for thought!

Volunteering has some brilliant benefits for you and for your community. Apart from helping others, volunteering is a great way to help you make friends, advance your career and learn new skills. You’ll make a valuable contribution to society and boost your own well-being along the way.

Volunteering is for anybody who wants to help others or the local community. There’s so many different ways to volunteer, from having a cup of tea with an elderly person to helping to clean a beach to admin or computer work.
