Volunteering is a fun and an easy way to explore your interests and passions. As a volunteer you can make a significant contribution to various areas of community life. Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.

- Learn new skills and gain confidence
- Be a significant part of a team
- Make new friends and have fun
- Help promote awareness of the needs and services in our community
- Gain satisfaction in the knowledge that volunteering really does make a difference
- Demonstrate your skills, which can be attractive to a future employer.
