Volunteering has so many amazing benefits. You will make new friends, learn new skills, gain valuable experience and it could even make you happier and healthier!
Volunteering has been shown to reduce stress, combat mental health problems such as depression and anxiety and provide a sense of purpose. There's no better feeling than knowing you have made a big difference with your time and skills.
We all lead busy lives and it can sometimes seem an impossible task to find the time to give to volunteering. Volunteering doesn't have to be a long term commitment or take up vast amounts of your time. Giving your skills and time in any small way could be hugely beneficial to Steps.
Volunteers come from all walks of life - you may be taking a career break, changing job direction or just simply have some time to spare. If you can help us in any way from decorating, plumbing, gardening, maintenance of the building, cleaning or providing activities with the children, then we would love to hear from you! If you have an idea and have an hour to spare then please give us a call.
Volunteering for Steps has given me my confidence back, it has helped my anxiety levels and given me a real focus and drive.
