Why volunteer?

Volunteering has many well-known benefits. Not only is it a really effective way to give back to one’s community and make a difference to the lives of other people, it also has some invaluable benefits for volunteers too.

 

Volunteering can mean emotional fulfilment. There is nothing better than the natural high volunteering gives you after doing something good for someone else. It is great to feel like you have used your skills in a meaningful and fulfilling way. Try it if you don’t believe us!

 

Volunteering can mean learning something new and building your confidence. Volunteering can often offer the chance to learn new skills and develop existing ones, present training opportunities and even the chance to gain qualifications through your volunteering.

 

Volunteering helps you meet new people. Anyone can be a volunteer and volunteering in a busy environment with others is a great way to connect with like-minded people. Many people make new friends through volunteering.

 

Volunteering can boost your career options. As well as the opportunity to learn new skills, research continuously shows that employers prefer job candidates who can show they have given back to their community and used their time in a meaningful way through volunteering over those who cannot. Many people use volunteering as a way back into work.

 

Volunteering is good for your health. There are many emotional, psychological and physical health benefits to volunteering, some of which are explored in more detail here by the NHS. JVN also works in partnership with the Barnet Wellbeing Hub to support people with mental health challenges to volunteer as a form of occupational therapy.
