Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society, local communities, individuals outside the immediate family, the environment or other causes. Voluntary activities are undertaken of a personís own free will, without payment, except for the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses.
Some people volunteer a few times a year when they have a spare day, whereas others give a regular commitment of several hours per week. Some people even volunteer full-time.
Before offering to volunteer, think about:
- Why you want to volunteer
- What type of voluntary work you would like (and wouldn't like!) to do
- What skills, experience or enthusiasm you can offer
- How much time you can give
If you wish to register your volunteer vacancy with us we shall do our best to provide you with an efficient, high quality and Free matching service. Registering for Volunteering
