Volunteering helps us feel
happier and healthier
Make a difference
We all live busy lives and it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous.
Volunteering not only offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, it will also have a positive impact on your life.
Helping others is proven to be good for your mental and physical health. It provides a sense of purpose, can reduce stress, keep you mentally stimulated and even reduce symptoms of depression.
Volunteering makes us feel happier and healthier. It connects us to others, it’s good for the mind and for the body, it can help to advance your career by giving you the opportunity to learn new skills, it can help you increase your confidence and self-esteem, and it can bring fulfilment to your life
