Why volunteer?

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Volunteering can give you something to do in your spare time, increase your social skills, help you gain new friends and contacts, increase your self-confidence and can be a stepping stone to employment.

We have a range of volunteering opportunities and recognise the importance of finding the opportunity that is right for you. You will be given a full role description, induction, training and ongoing support and will have the opportunity to meet other volunteers who are also making a difference. Expenses will be paid.
