Volunteering changes two lives – the life of the person receiving support, and the life of the person freely giving their time and effort to provide that support.
Being a volunteer has been shown to increase self-confidence, self-esteem, positive health and promote recovery as well as boosting your career.
You can develop new skills and abilities and enhance your existing skills through supported development and certificated training.
This can lead to increased employability, widened horizons and previously unknown opportunities for you – as well as new friends and companionship.
Within our Wellbeing Volunteer Service, over 40% of volunteers have managed to access education courses, new jobs or promotion within existing employment as a result of their volunteering experience…and because of the flexible nature of the Wellbeing Volunteer role, still continue to volunteer with us.
