Do you want to make new friends, boost your confidence and improve your CV, as well as making a real difference to your community? If so, then volunteering could be for you.
Volunteers make a vital contribution to all aspects of community life in Portsmouth, whatever their interests or skills. There is a huge variety of opportunities for any volunteer: from helping an elderly neighbour with their shopping, joining a team creating a new community garden, or providing legal advice for a local charity.
Before applying for any volunteering opportunity, think about what you have to offer and what you would like to gain from a volunteering experience:
- how much time do you want to commit?
- what days or times would you be available?
- what do you enjoy doing .. or what are you good at?
- Are there any new skills you would like to learn?
