Anyone can volunteer. It can be very rewarding and is a great way to:
Meet new people
Gain new or use existing skills
Make a big difference to your community
Mentor others through your knowledge and life experiences
Get that golden ticket of fulfilment and satisfaction that money can’t buy by just making a difference and knowing you are appreciated by others.
There are lots of easy ways to give your time to help others – from having a cup of tea with an elderly local resident, to helping out in your local area with some of our ongoing projects or making a regular commitment to volunteer with the charity to help our community partner groups.
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help others those in need and improve your health and happiness.
Bidgley Power Foundation has a database of volunteering opportunities with the people of our area adding to the list of potential programmes and projects on a weekly basis. We can find the volunteering roll that best suits your time and skill sets. More volunteering opportunities by partner groups are being forwarded regularly so something that interest you and inspires positive change is bound to be available to meet your time and ability.
