About volunteering

Hands held high for volunteeringAs a Co-operative Council we believe our residents have an important role to play in volunteering and supporting the local community.

Becoming a volunteer can be personally rewarding and help you to 'give something back' to your community, examples of just some of the ways you can volunteer are:

  • caring for a friend or member of the family
  • caring for animals and wildlife
  • setting up a volunteer scheme at your workplace
  • spending time mentoring and befriending a young person
  • working outdoors to improve the environment
  • working on local community projects
  • becoming a school or college governor.

As a volunteer you can give your time to help charities and community groups make a difference, but volunteering can also provide you with many benefits too, including:

  • the chance to have fun doing something you've never tried before
  • increased confidence
  • a sense of satisfaction and achievement
  • the opportunity to make new friends and contacts with diverse backgrounds and experiences
  • increased job and career prospects and new skills - over 70 per cent of employers would hire a candidate with volunteering experience over someone who has never volunteered.

So why not give it a try!
