People choose to volunteer for a whole range of reasons. Some people want to give something back to their local community or make a difference to the people around them.
For other people, it is an opportunity to develop existing skills, experience and knowledge.
Volunteering can be very rewarding but at the same time challenging.
For those who have been made redundant or are looking for employment, voluntary work is a good way to keep work skills up-to-date and for continuous professional development (CPD). It is something you can add to your curriculum vitae (CV), it gets you out of the home and gives you an opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances and help build a network.
Alternatively, those people in work can benefit from volunteering in another environment as these experiences can be taken back to the existing workplace. Some organisations allow their employees to do some voluntary work during the working week.
