Volunteering is giving your time freely, to benefit someone unrelated, a group, or the environment, for no financial reward. As a volunteer you can choose how much time you want to give, and what you want to do.
People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. It allows you to:
- Get involved in your local community
- Make a difference to the lives of others
- Meet new people
- Help the environment
- Gain confidence and self-esteem
- Learn new skills
- Explore career options
- Gain a reference, enhance your CV
