Volunteering is Good for You

Voluntary work offers you a great opportunity to help your local community, boost your confidence, develop new skills and even improve your health!

The Economic and Social Research Council recently surveyed 101 randomly selected district authorities.  Their research revealed that those offering the best quality of life showed high levels of informal community action.  People in these community-aware regions also enjoyed better health, suffered less crime and even achieved higher grades.

Your job prospects benefit too:

Committed voluntary work experience is an impressive feature on your CV.  In fact, more than 70% of employers would rather hire a candidate with volunteering experience than someone who has never volunteered.
