Volunteers play a vital role in our organisation.
Volunteers give their time, skills, life experience, goodwill and energy to the community. They do this for free by working with non-profit organisations to help them extend their services and enhance the community’s quality of life

Are you interested in community / volunteer work?

People volunteer for many reasons. Usually they want to satisfy some personal need by helping the community. Whether you wish to meet new people, support a cause, try something new, give something back to the community or simply have fun, the wide variety of volunteer opportunities can satisfy the range of motives for volunteering.
People gain as much from volunteering as they give. Countless volunteers have gained new skills, furthered their education, and even entered paid work through volunteering to help others.
Some of the most common reasons for volunteering are to:
- Help those in need gain skills.
- Give back for past support.
- Avert loneliness and ease boredom.
- Use or develop skills.
- Satisfy a need to be needed, stay active and involved.
- Gain work experience and make professional contacts.
- Contribute to the community’s success, have fun and make friends.
