Why volunteer?

The benefits of volunteering are enormous not only to the cause you support but to you, your family and your local community.

Volunteering can help connect you with your local community. If you have recently moved it can help you get to know your neighbourhood and make new friends.

There is lots of evidence that volunteering has a positive impact on your health

Volunteering can be a great way to enhance your CV by gaining new skills, knowledge and experience and developing existing skills.

Volunteering can be a fun way to explore new interests, help you feel valued and part of a team whilst making a vital contribution to our cause.

Remember volunteering can be provided by an individual, family, school, or community group.
