Individual actions may seem small, but, together, will have to echo around the world and will generate an unstoppable momentum towards a better future.- Ban Ki-Moon; UN Sec Gen
Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society and the community, the environment, or individuals outside one's immediate family. It is undertaken freely and without concern for financial gain.
Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people.
Through volunteering you can:
- Take on a challenge - Getting involved in something new can be a real challenge. Volunteering can help you achieve personal goals, develop new skills and practice your talents. Sometimes a volunteer experience can lead you to something you never even thought about or help you to discover a hobby or interest you were unaware of.
- Be part of your community – volunteering can help build stronger communities, get involved in your community and feel part of something outside your family or circle of friends.
- Meet new people - Getting involved as a volunteer will allow you to meet lots of different kinds of people and make new friends.
- Sense of Wellbeing – Research demonstrates that volunteering can lead to better health*.
- Personal Development - If you are thinking about career development, about getting a job or returning to work, the experience you gain as a volunteer can be useful.
- Have fun - Volunteering is an excellent leisure activity. Most volunteers get great enjoyment from what they do - that's why they keep on doing it. Finding new interests and hobbies can be fun, relaxing and energising.
