There are many benefits to be gained from volunteering
Volunteers often find many unexpected benefits from volunteering. As well as the obvious benefits of improving a CV, or gaining a referee, volunteers also appreciate meeting new social circles and gaining increased confidence when faced with new challenges.
An active community is more likely to be a healthy and happy community, and people thinking about doing some voluntary work in Thurrock have plenty of opportunities to choose from.
Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy for the benefit of society and the community and it can take many forms. It is freely undertaken and not for financial gain. it is an activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment, or individuals or groups other than close relatives.
Volunteers support services across the voluntary, community and faith sector, and public services such as libraries, schools and hospital visiting. There really are volunteer opportunities to fit every desire, and there is certainly something for everyone as most opportunities provide training and guidance if needed.
