We’re always on the lookout for new volunteers to get involved with our charity and help us to support people out of homelessness. Volunteering is a win-win for everyone involved and we’ve put together a few reasons why…

1. Volunteering makes us feel fulfilled and positive

By volunteering we can give something of ourselves for free and make a valuable contribution to our own communities.

2. Volunteering Builds Resilience

Focusing on challenges external to our own lives, helps us diminish the magnitude of our own challenges and helps us develop our own ability to handle challenges more effectively.

3. Volunteering Makes us Feel Good

Volunteering provides us with an important sense of purpose and helps us to value the challenges of other people’s lives.

4. Volunteering is Great for Building New Relationships

Volunteering builds strong relationships, creates friendships and is a great way to get to know more about the people living in our communities.

5. Volunteering Boosts Confidence

By stepping outside of our comfort zones, we become more confident. We get to meet new people and learn new skills making us more confident about our own abilities.
