Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community and people choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons.
For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
Volunteers do all sorts of things, from admin to gardening, cooking to fundraising, driving to web design - the possibilities are endless!
Research shows that volunteering is a good way for people to improve their chances of securing employment by building up confidence and motivation, developing skills and making contacts with potential employers.
