Getting the most out of your volunteering

People volunteer for lots of different reasons. It might be you're looking to develop new skills, or keep old ones up to date, or to get a reference. For others it might be you want to get some up to date work experience, improve your English, or just to do something to help. It doesn't matter what your motive is, the important thing is that you want to volunteer!

We have developed a pack (download from here) to help people that are looking for volunteering, to plan what you choose to do and to think about what you're getting out of your volunteering. There are a few activities as well as some useful advice about the following:

Who we are and what we do

  • Volunteering - what can I expect?
  • Searching for a placement
  • Choosing a placement
  • How’s volunteering benefiting you?
  • Safeguarding
  • Volunteering while on benefits 

So, download the pack above. Happy volunteering!
