Volunteering is an opportunity for you to gain as well as give. Some of the benefits of volunteering are highlighted below:

  • Develop skills for the workplace
  • Support a cause you care about
  • Build confidence and self esteem
  • Enhance your CV
  • Meet new people
  • Get involved with the community
  • Improve your language skills

Every person who volunteers takes away something different from their experience. If you decide to give your time then you can be sure to be rewarded.

We are also happy to help you over the phone (020 7 3256 480) or by email volunteering@vclambeth.org.uk. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
