Why not make a difference.... Volunteer!
Volunteering offers an opportunity to make a difference in your community. Not only is it a way of giving something back, it is a chance to socialise and meet new friends and it can also increase your chances of paid employment.
Volunteering can also teach you new skills - many opportunities offer training and some even offer formal training with a qualification!
Volunteering can provide valuable references. Many employers have indicated that they see people who have done some form of volunteering more favourably than others.
Volunteering comes in many forms and there are as many opportunities available for both younger and retired people. Click Here to find out more about opportunities that exist in your area.
