People choose to volunteer for a number of reasons, for some volunteering can be a route to employment or a means of learning new skills to change career. Volunteering for others means giving something back to the local community and making a difference in someone’s life. It may also be a way to reduce social isolation, make new friends and build lifetime friendships.
Volunteering can be one of the most rewarding investments you will ever make.
Whatever your motivation, we appreciate your contribution as a volunteer and will provide access to all relevant training, support and advice from your line manager and the volunteer community navigator. Whether you have a little or lots of time to give, there should be a volunteering opportunity available to help you make a difference.
