The key is to find a volunteer position that you would enjoy and are capable of doing. It’s also important to make sure that your commitment matches our needs. The following questions can help you narrow down your options:
- Would you like to work with adults, children or remotely from home?
- Do you prefer to work alone or as part of a team?
- Are you better behind the scenes or do you prefer to take a more visible role?
- How much time are you willing to commit?
- How much responsibility are you ready to take on?
- What skills can you bring to a volunteering role?
The benefits of volunteering can be enormous to you, your family and your community…
As a volunteer with Connecting Carers you will have a chance to develop your abilities and learn new skills, while working as part of our dynamic team.
Volunteers are supported in their role, given training and out of pocket expenses to enable them to develop and get the most out of their volunteering experience. Many people think they don’t have enough time to volunteer, however, many of the roles require a commitment of only one or two hours a week, and a few can be done from the comfort of your own home.
