Why Volunteer

Home > Volunteers > Why Volunteer

Volunteers are the life blood of voluntary/charitable organisations that enable them to put their hard earned donations and funding into front line services in the local community so that more of their funds raised can go directly to the beneficiaries of their charity/organisation.

  • Volunteering helps the volunteer too in so many ways including:
  • Learning new skills
  • Make new friends
  • Giving you a feel good feeling and making you feel proud that you are helping those in your community that need support
  • Giving you a purpose, if you have time on your hands
  • Keep you busy and on the move if you are now retired
  • Good for your CV as it shows the type of person you are
  • Great for references, as Charities and Community groups are always happy to support good volunteers into work if they want to.
