Volunteering – Is it for YOU?

 

Often, people find that taking that first step to find out about volunteering is often the hardest. If you visit us at The Roundhouse (by Boots), Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, the rest is easy. We are now offering a choice of ways to find out more about volunteering, and the role that suits you best, all with a free cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit!

1. Drop in at any time for a friendly chat with one of our team of volunteers. We are open from 10am to 4pm Weekdays and 11.00am to 3pm Saturdays.

2. Make an appointment for a relaxed chat with one of our volunteer advisors. Appointments are available on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings.

3. Come to one of our new weekly “Introduction to Volunteering” sessions on a Monday morning at 11am. The first session takes place on Monday 5th February. Places are limited, so give us a ring on 01442 247209 to book yours.

4. Make an appointment on a Thursday morning with our Volunteer Life Coach. Viviana will help you plan your next steps.

If you have time to spare and are interested in volunteering, any one of these could help you decide what you could do. There is no pressure to sign up, but for those who do decide to give it a go, the benefits are numerous and varied.

We have received many compliments from people we have helped, telling us how volunteering has helped them including:

“Thank you for all your help and for being such lovely people”

“Thanks to all the kind staff for helping me to find exactly what I wanted to do and showing me how volunteering could help me achieve this”

“I absolutely love volunteering. It is so rewarding and I have made lots of new friends”

“My volunteering role was mentioned at my job interview. They felt that it was a good thing to have done to improve my skills ready for returning to employment”.

The variety of opportunities open to you is enormous. There really is something for everyone so why not pay us a visit. We look forward to seeing you! Alternatively, if you prefer you can always visit our website www.volunteerdacorum.org and apply online.
