Why Volunteer?

By definition a volunteer is a person who freely offers their time to support and organisation or cause, but surely there is far more to being a volunteer than just the words assigned to it in a dictionary…

So what does it really mean to be a volunteer?

Volunteering is a highly rewarding experience, where YOU can take time out to do something in the hope it will help make a difference, however small, to someone else’s life. At BeConnected Community Services, being a volunteer provides an opportunity to form new relationships with the people in your neighbourhood, have a positive impact on your community and overall your own personal well-being.

Volunteering is the perfect vehicle to develop new skills and discover more about yourself, whether it be through a chat with the elderly, or through promoting community spirit. Imagine being able to look back at your own actions, and feel a genuine sense of self-achievement and motivation.

Not many experiences can offer such accomplishments, but through volunteering, these are all accessible through even the smallest day-to-day jobs.

Always remember “With one small gesture you can change a life. Then one person at a time you can change the world”.

So if you’re looking for a chance to gain life experiences,  give back to the community and perhaps even change your life along the way, ring or email one of our Branches today!
