From schoolchildren to senior citizens; from people in unskilled jobs to professional people; from the highly paid to the unemployed; from the able-bodied to people with disabilities. Everyone has something to offer.

Why volunteer?

People volunteer for a variety of reasons:

  • learn new skills
  • make a difference to something you care about
  • improve your career prospects
  • add variety to your day
  • have fun
  • build self confidence
  • add experience to your CV

Studies show that people who volunteer regularly are likely to enjoy better health and even live longer!

Perhaps the chief reward is in finding satisfaction in doing something worthwhile.
