Volunteers are at the heart of many organisations in particular charities. Studies have identified that helping others increases happiness and can improve both our mental and physical health. Such improvements can benefit you, your family, and your community. As well as improving health, volunteering can be a great way to develop and update skills, learn more about career options and make friends.
Depending on your interests, the skills you have or the skills you wish to develop there are various opportunities available. As well as giving you the tools to enhance your volunteering experience, completed training courses as part of your volunteering role can all be used to enhance your C.V.
