Why Volunteer?

Volunteering means that you are giving your time to help others and this alone is a great reason to do it, but what's in it for you?

People report many different ways in which they gain from volunteering. Here are just some of the benefits:

  • develop self-confidence
  • develop communication skills
  • sense of achievement
  • sense of self-worth
  • learn more about others
  • learn more about yourself
  • meet people
  • have fun
  • looks great on your CV
  • do something positive with your time
