About Us

Are you thinking of taking your first steps into volunteering? Or maybe, you’re coming back for more? Whatever your answer or reasons, we’re glad that you’re considering voluntary work. You can make a real difference not only to helping others or supporting your community, but more importantly you’ll get to experience the fulfilment that volunteering brings and a multitude of personal benefits in return.

Take a look through our 'information for volunteers' and when you’re ready, it’s just a matter of finding your ideal role!. That’s where we can help! Read on, then register with us.

What Is Volunteering?

We define volunteering as the act of freely giving your time to help an organisation, or individual to whom you are not related. If you have ever helped out at a sports event, a school fair, or taken part in a sponsored walk, you've been a volunteer.

Volunteering should never be something you are made to do, and is not done for financial gain. The rewards are about the satisfaction of putting something back into society, about gaining useful experience and skills, meeting new people, and hopefully having fun!
