Are you thinking about volunteering? Volunteering is a great thing to do. Whether a step to employment, supporting your local community or giving something back there are plenty of reasons people volunteer.
The NCVO (National Council for Voluntary Organisations) says that:
“People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.”
We are always on the look out for volunteers. From supporting our fundraising events, to helping with social media, supporting our tenants and assisting in our sensory sessions there are plenty of diverse activities to get involved with.
Our volunteer Alicia says:
‘Volunteering at the Wilberforce Trust charity has provided me with the perfect opportunity to give back to the community in a city I love whilst helping make a difference to the lives of those living with sight and hearing loss. I find it very rewarding to be able to support those with disabilities to ensure they can live life as independently as possible and volunteering with the charity has allowed me to do this.’
