Volunteering roles are as many and varied as the people who volunteer.
If you’re looking to experience new things, utilise your existing skills, meet new people or give just a small amount of time from home there are roles for you.
There are a huge number of volunteering roles available right now in North Yorkshire. Just as there is no such thing as a typical charity or community group, volunteering roles are just as unique. Roles can be anything from being a trustee, a community transport driver, a charity shop assistant to being a befriender. You might want to volunteer on a regular basis or help out at a one-off event – there’s plenty of flexibility to help you give the gift of your time in a way that suits you.
“Volunteering …is a great experience and a really good way of boosting skills. Whether you want to give back to the community, do more with your spare time or develop employability skills – there are so many different volunteering opportunities available. I never could have imagined that starting out as a volunteer would end up with me, employed as the full-time Communications Officer at Healthwatch North Yorkshire.” Gemma Hutcheson, Communications Officer, Healthwatch North Yorkshire.
