The great outdoors just got even better!

The great outdoors just got even better!

For many people, the impression they have of volunteering is working behind the counter of a charity shop or helping in a day centre. If you are an outdoors person no doubt these roles would not appeal to you. However, there are many roles out there to suit all tastes.

Some organisations mainly have outdoor opportunities such as gardening, dog walking, leading walking groups or looking after outdoor public spaces. Others require volunteers to carry out outside tasks such as painting or fixing. Some roles are ongoing and others short term to cover specific tasks or events. 

When you consider your reasons for wanting to volunteer, is there a specific charity or organisation that you would like to support? Would you like to be involved in the local community? Is your interest wildlife, horticulture or health and well-being? Do you like sharing your knowledge with potential visitors or would you prefer just to get stuck in to the job in hand?

Whatever your reasons for giving your time, volunteering can offer a wealth of benefits both to you and the organisation you are helping: 

- Helping the environment

- Making the community a nicer place

- Extending a hobby or interest

- Learning new skills

- Meeting other people with similar interests

At Medway Volunteer Network we support people into volunteering roles. Our volunteering opportunities page gives more details http://www.medwayvoluntaryaction.org.uk/volunteering-opportunity-listings and you can sign up to receive our bulletin here.
