  • Gain confidence - Volunteering can help you gain confidence by giving you the chance to try something new and build a real sense of achievement.

  • Meet people - Volunteering can help you meet different kinds of people and make new friends.
  • Be part of a community - Volunteering can help you feel part of something outside your friends and family.
  • Learn new skills  - Volunteering can help you learn new skills, gain experience and sometimes even qualifications.
  • Share experience - Volunteering provides an opportunity to invest in others and share your skills, knowledge and experience
  • Take on a challenge - Through volunteering you can  challenge yourself to try something different, achieve  personal goals, practice using your skills and discover hidden talents.
  • And finally - Have fun!
