Volunteer Why volunteer Give a little, gain a lot. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back and/or make a difference. For others it provides not only that but an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Some of the things that volunteering can do for you – give your CV a boost and potentially get you a job, improve your confidence, increase your independence, make new friends and learn new skills. We have lots of vacancies for volunteers, at our centre or shops.
