How to become a volunteer

Volunteering benefits both the volunteer and the people they support through the charity they’re matched with. It has been proven to be an excellent way to make friends, improve self-esteem, learn new skills and give people purpose to their lives. It’s a powerful way to help others by giving back to the community and help yourself too.

It’s really simple – you give some of your free time to do something useful for other people and organisations in and around Essex, without getting paid (apart from your expenses). In return you get the satisfaction of knowing that your time and effort has been well spent and much appreciated by those you have helped.

In addition, volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and gain new experience.

If this sounds like something you’d like to do you can search opportunities via this website or simply contact us for more information and we’ll get you started.
