The benefits of volunteering are endless, for the volunteer and the organisation in which they choose to volunteer. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity for you to add value to your community by supporting the community organisation you volunteer for. Your skills and experience are unique. Every volunteer contributes their own personality, strengths and experience no-one else can provide exactly what you can.
The satisfaction experienced by giving freely of your time and abilities to help individuals and your community to be “better off” is enormously rewarding. Being involved for the greater good and being part of a team contributes to your well being, providing a greater sense of community for you, opportunities for gaining friends, and enjoying a richer life through your volunteering.
