Introduction to Volunteering



Volunteering can be a life-changing experience, for the people that volunteers help and for volunteers themselves.  Sometimes it can be difficult to find time to volunteer, but the benefits can be great.

Volunteering allows you to make new friends, learn new skills which in turn can improve your chances of career opportunities if you need this.  You will be engaging with your community and it can also improve your mental and physical health.

Volunteering doesn’t have to be a big time commitment – there are opportunities for short-term  or one-off projects/events as well as some that require long-term and regular commitment.

Whatever you’re looking for, there’s an opportunity to suit everyone and VANS supports individuals in those opportunities – particularly people who may need a little extra help.
