Information » Things To Do » Interests » Volunteering


  • Volunteering is when you give up your spare time to help others
  • You can volunteer for anything you like, from spending time helping your neighbours to caring for rescued animals. With so many ways in which you can volunteer, you should be able to find something that interests you
  • As well as knowing you have helped others, volunteering is also great for you. It shows you are responsible and trustworthy, which will be useful when you come to look for jobs
  • There are several ways in which you can get involved. You can register with a volunteering organisation, which will then help find you a volunteering placement that you will enjoy. Or if you know the company you want to volunteer with, you can approach the company directly and ask if they take volunteers there. Most universities have a volunteering scheme, so if you go to university you can carry on volunteering once you are there
