Volunteering is choosing to do something for the benefit of others, or for your community or the environment, without being paid to do it. Volunteering is open to anyone, and can bring great personal rewards. We believe that everyone has a valuable contribution to make to society.

Volunteering is a great way to:

  • Meet people
  • Gain work experience
  • Make a difference
  • Do something you’re passionate about
  • Fill some spare time
  • Help people
  • Get involved in your local community
  • Try something new
  • Enjoy yourself

If you are looking for something to do then there are lots of organisations that would appreciate your time!
