What is Volunteering?
Volunteering is about choosing to help other people by giving up your time or expertise. There are many different types of volunteering activities and the different opportunities can involve people giving up several hours a week, or helping at one event when it is convenient for the volunteer.
Every person’s motivation to volunteer is different and there are a lot of reasons to make a contribution to your community’s social and healthy activities. People often volunteer because they will:
- Make a difference
- Gain a lot of satisfaction from helping others
- Meet people and socialize
- Develop existing and new skills
- Give something back
