Volunteering with Us

We value our volunteers since they play such an important role in our organisation.

 

Here are a few of the reasons individuals volunteer for us:

  • To support an important cause
  • To make new friends
  • To learn new skills such as problem solving, customer service, merchandising and ¬†teamwork
  • To gain work experience for their CV¬†and enhance employability
  • To do something rewarding with their spare time
  • To share their skills with others
  • To keep active
  • To reduce isolation and improve overall wellbeing
  • It can fit around your personal and work commitments
  • It can also sometimes lead on to paid work in retail, customer service or other sectors.
