What is Volunteering?

Volunteering is anything you do that helps other people or the general community beyond your own family, so long as you do it because you choose to and not for financial gain.

Why Volunteer?

There are many good reasons to volunteer, you may want to:

  • Meet new people
  • Gain new experience
  • Develop or learn new skills
  • Meet a new challenge
  • Fill spare time
  • Make a difference
  • A stepping stone back into employment
