Why volunteer?

You may decide to volunteer because you have some spare time and would like to use your skills and experience to help your local community. However, there is also a wealth of evidence showing the positive impacts that volunteering has on the person volunteering – from reduced stress and improved health to improved employability and personal development.

Volunteering can give you opportunities to get experience and training in an area you would like to work in. Volunteering proves to future employers that you have developed necessary skills and are a committed person. This is especially useful for application forms and job interviews. In addition, volunteering opens up new social networks, and helps people to integrate more in their communities.
