There are many reasons why volunteering could be a great opportunity:

  • give something back to an organisation that has an impacted on your community and wildlife directly or indirectly

  • make a difference to the lives of others

  • help the environment

  • feel valued and part of a team

  • spend quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle

  • gain confidence and self-esteem.

For some, volunteering can be a route to employment, or a chance to try something new which may lead to a career change. From this perspective, volunteering can be a way of:

  • gaining new skills, knowledge and experience

  • developing existing skills and knowledge

  • enhancing a CV

  • improving one's employment prospects

  • gaining an accreditation

  • using one's professional skills and knowledge to benefit others (usually described as pro bono).

For others, volunteering appeals because of its social benefits. These include:

  • meeting new people and making new friends

  • a chance to socialise

  • getting to know the local community.

There is lots of anecdotal evidence that volunteering has a positive impact on health.
