Volunteering Opportunities

Why Volunteer?

Give a little, gain a lot!

Whilst you will want to make a difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others.  Volunteers get a lot out of the experience too.  Good volunteering is rewarding for everyone involved.

Volunteering can help you:

Get back into work

It will give your CV a boost and it is a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience.  You can also try out different types of work – which can really help if you are looking for a job or want a change of direction.

Improve your confidence

You will learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to – this can be a real confidence boost!

Improve your health

Partaking in volunteering can have many physical and psychological benefits to your health as well.  It can give you an increased sense of well-being, improve your immune system and help to resolve any anxiety or depression issues you might have.

Meet new people

You will probably meet people from different cultures and backgrounds that you might not normally.  Volunteering with people who are as passionate about a cause as you are is a great way to meet like-minded people.
