Volunteer Opportunities

Why Become a Volunteer?

Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy - in an activity that involves spending time, without financial reward, doing something that aims to benefit the community, the environment or individuals outside one's immediate family.

As you can see from the definition, volunteers can do almost anything! From helping elderly neighbours with their shopping, to providing legal advice for a local charity, volunteers make a vital contribution to all aspects of community life.

Many people see volunteering as an opportunity to “give back to society” and do something they feel passionate about. At the heart of volunteering is the willingness and ability of citizens to give freely of their time out of a sense of solidarity and responsibility without financial gain. It can also empower volunteers and give them the chance to travel, meet new people and accumulate life and career enhancing experiences and skills.
