What are the Benefits of volunteering?

You might be under the impression that volunteering is only for passionate students or those who are retired. That’s not the case, nor should it be. Volunteers can be people of any age, in any occupation. From students volunteering to gain experience for work, to CEO’s volunteering, there’s so many benefits when giving back to your community.

How do I find time?

Following our habitual routines, we seem to think that our lives are busier than they actually are. However, it’s not actually about how busy we are, but rather what we choose to prioritise and what we choose to focus our energy on. 

What are the benefits? 

Volunteering has a range of benefits, not only for the people you’re helping, but also for yourself. It can give people a purpose, a source of fulfillment, and can in turn, improve your self-confidence, wellbeing and mental health.   

Volunteering means engaging with the wider community and people you may not usually cross paths with in your daily life, which can strengthen social ties and prevent isolation. Volunteering is a practical way to learn new skills and empower others and yourself at the same time. 

Volunteering can:

  • Give you a sense of achievement and purpose
  • Help you feel part of a community
  • Help you feel better about yourself by improving your self-esteem and confidence
  • Help you share your skills, learn new skills and create a better work-life balance
  • Help combat stress, loneliness and social isolation, and depression
  • Help you meet new people, which can help you feel more connected and valued
