Volunteer You don’t have to be Bear Grylls to volunteer! You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent! Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family. Research has shown that volunteering has a hugely positive impact on the lives of those who volunteer in the charity sector. According to research, the majority of volunteers reported having improved life satisfaction (70%) and self-esteem (66%) since beginning volunteer work, as well as having reduced feelings of loneliness (42%) and stress (33%). Volunteering is easier than you think. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life. Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is!
