National Volteering Week 1st - 7th June
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.
Below are just some of the reasons people choose to volunteer.
- Make a difference to the lives of others
- Help others less fortunate than themselves
- Feel valued and part of a team
- Gain new skills, knowledge and experience
- Developing existing skills and knowledge
- Improve confidence and self-esteem
- Enhancing a CV
- Improving one's employment prospects
- Gaining an accreditation
- Meeting new people and making new friends
- A chance to socialise
- Getting to know the local community
We are committed to providing good, high quality volunteering opportunities to anyone who wants to gain knowledge and experience of dealing with the complex issues relating to hearing loss. However, we are firm believers that volunteering should be voluntary and therefore we do not accept placement of people on the Government’s “workfare” scheme and will not put people at risk of welfare sanctions.
