What can I gain from volunteering?

You will have the chance to meet and help people from the local community, creating a sense of achievement. In volunteering you will build experience and develop your skills to enhance a college, university or job application.

What support will I be given?

You will receive a full induction to the Service, and ongoing training and guidance. We will reimburse any expenses for lunch (if volunteering more than 4 hours in one day) and travel.
