FOLLOWING a good summer you may want to get outside or start a new project, if so, than maybe volunteering is the thing for you. 

Whether you’ve got a few hours a month or a day a week there’s an opportunity out there to suit.  “Volunteering provides me with the chance to do meaningful work that enhances the community and makes me feel useful.”

Here are just a few opportunities within your area: Short-term Host: Cultural Exchange Visits with Host UK, help make the world a little friendlier. Spend a day or weekend with an international student, learning about their culture, showing them your local area and inviting them to experience your own home life.

Emergency Fundraisers : ActionAid is looking for enthusiastic and dynamic volunteers from around the UK to join in the global fight to protect those affected by international conflict and natural disasters by becoming Emergency Fundraisers.

Home Visitor  Volunteer : Blind Veterans are looking for volunteers who would be at the forefront of providing vital help for their members. Your role would be to support them in everyday activities whilst providing them with a friendly, sociable person to talk to.
