Volunteer

Volunteer with us. Make a difference!

Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. Without them the support we provide to our members and our communtiy just wouldn’t be possible

Life is short. Do stuff that matters.

Whilst you’ll want to make a real difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others. Here are some of the things that volunteering can do for you:

GIVE YOUR CV A BOOST

Time Bank recently did a survey of some of the UK’s leading businesses and 73%* said they’d employ someone who’s volunteered over someone who hasn’t.

MEET NEW PEOPLE

Volunteering with people who are as passionate about improving the opportunities for you people, as you are, is a great way to meet like-minded people.

GET BACK INTO WORK

It’s a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience. You can also try out different types of work to get a taster.

IMPROVE YOUR CONFIDENCE

You’ll learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to – this can be a real
confidence boost.
