Why volunteer?

People volunteer for all sorts of reasons including:

  • To meet new people
  • To try something new
  • To have fun
  • To do something you enjoy
  • To help get into paid employment
  • To put something on your CV
  • To get practical experience whilst studying
  • To use skills or qualifications you already have
  • To get out of the house
  • To gain confidence
  • To feel useful and valued
  • To feel part of a team
  • To give something back to the community or a cause you believe in
  • To do something different

There are different ways you can find local volunteering opportunities:


Help to get you started with volunteering

If you are not sure what you would like to do or would like some additional help, we run a supported volunteering project that helps people take part in some volunteering taster sessions and provides the chance to work towards a level one qualification. The project is run several times a year and lasts 6 – 8 weeks.  Sessions take place once a week, with each one lasting approximately 5 hours.  Taking part in the project is free and transport can be provided.  For more information on this scheme, please email [email protected] or phone 01352 744000
