It’s a two way thing-

Many people say that the main reason they volunteer is because they want to make a difference. Volunteering gives individuals a lot in return for the giving they do to others. It is a chance to use your time and skills for something which is important to you. Volunteering can help boost your confidence, provide an opportunity to make friends and feel good about volunteering your time and energy to your community.

Why volunteer?

  • To learn new skills
  • Share life experiences and skills
  • Contribute to society by helping people who may be disadvantaged
  • Meet new friends
  • Give back to the community
  • Make a difference
  • Gain experience and contacts to help find paid employment
  • Build self-confidence
  • Stay active and engaged in the community

It's about getting involved, participating and making a difference in the community you live in. It's about learning new skills, sharing life experiences and helping others.

Volunteering is about putting that spare time to good use, making contacts and building self confidence and self worth. It's about staying active, socializing and gaining friends for life.

Limestone Coast Volunteering is about contributing to the health and well being of the community. Volunteering can be done in a variety of fields: Art/culture, sport & recreation, children & youth, disadvantaged groups, environment, conservation & Human rights; it's all about your preferences and skills.
