Why volunteer?

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be huge! We know that volunteering can make a big difference to other people, worthwhile causes, and the whole community, but the benefits can be even greater for you!

Volunteering can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, or enhance your career. It can also improve your mental and physical health. You don't have to offer a long-term commitment or a huge amounts of time, either. Whether you’re in it for the long-haul, or would like to get involved in a one off activity, project or event - we can help you to discover your ideal opportunity.

Whatever your motives, volunteering can spark a positive change within you, and your community! Visit www.sparkachange.org.uk to get started.
