This #GivingTuesday, we are asking our supporters to donate the gift of time by volunteering in their communities.

In 2015, #GivingTuesday broke the world record for the highest amount of money donated online in a 24 hour period. We think this is brilliant – but #GivingTuesday shouldn’t just be about giving money. We believe that social action volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your community, whether that be through befriending an isolated older person, mentoring a disadvantaged young person or taking part in a group activity to achieve a social goal.

Our volunteers tell us that they get as much as they give through volunteering. The rich experience of volunteering will allow you to meet new people, learn new skills and make a positive and meaningful contribution to society. So what are you waiting for? Take a look at the volunteer opportunities we offer in your community and sign up today!
