The first and most important thing to do when thinking about volunteering is to decide what it is that you want to gain from your experience.

There are many benefits to volunteering, which can include:

  • Gain new skills 
  • Build confidence, self-esteem, and structure to life
  • Help people 
  • Get a reference 
  • Build up contacts to help find a paid job
  • Try a new area of work 
  • Meet new people (and make new friends!)
  • Experience different cultures 
  • It stops your skills from getting rusty 
  • Ease yourself back into work after a difficult time

Why volunteer?

Some of our volunteers joined to meet new friends or to gain skills and experience; others joined because of a connection to a specific service, i.e., they have a hearing impairment and have previously used our Sensory Solutions service.
