We recognise that volunteering is often an opportunity to give to the local community but it can also be a great chance for your own personal development. Some of the benefits of becoming a volunteer include:

  • Meet people – many volunteering roles will mean you will get to meet people, get involved with the local community and make new connections. Volunteering will bring you in to touch with people, like yourself, who want to make a difference.
  • Improve your CV and chances of employment – when applying for a job, employers often look favourably on people who have detailed their volunteering roles on their applications.
  • Getting back to work – if you have been out of work, volunteering can give you the opportunity to get back into the regular routine and also offer a taste of the variety of roles that could be available.
  • Improving confidence – stepping into a new role, taking on new tasks and learning new things will make you feel able to be more adaptable and will improve your general confidence.
  • Improving your health – getting active is always positive, but even the commitment to a regular volunteering role can bring benefits to both physical and mental health.
