Benefits of Volunteering

There are few true win-win situations. But volunteering is definitely one. Whether you want to improve your CV with new skills, meet new people or just feel good about yourself, we can match you with a volunteer opportunity that could change your life for the better.

Five reasons to volunteer

  1. Build your confidence and make new friends
    Volunteering is about sharing new experiences and learning with different people. You will learn new skills that can give you the confidence to face challenges in other areas of your life.
     
  2. Improve your community
    You are the perfect person to start making a difference to where you live. Volunteering creates a sense of community, improves your area and helps you appreciate your surroundings and neighbours.
     
  3. Improve your health
    Research shows that volunteering can improve your health and create a heightened sense of well-being.
     
  4. Boost your career options
    A survey carried out by TimeBank through Reed Executive found 73% of employers would employ a candidate with volunteering experience over one without. Also, volunteering lets you try out different kinds of work, giving you hands-on experience of how different professions operate.
     
  5. Have more fun!
    And don’t forget that volunteering can be great fun. New people, new surroundings, new experiences all combine to create great times with new friends.
