Volunteering is described as an unpaid activity where someone gives their time to help a not-for-profit organisation or an individual who they are not related to.
There are a number of benefits to volunteering which include:
- Volunteering helps to prepare for paid employment. It builds confidence; you will meet new people, learn new skills, get a reference and have experience to add to your CV.
- Volunteering is an excellent way to support the causes that matter to you
- One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.
Luton has a large voluntary and community sector that are always looking for new volunteers.
Luton Council also runs its own volunteer scheme and offers a number of placements within the council and also provides signposting opportunities to some of the councils many partners
