Volunteering in the Highlands

What is Volunteering all about?

Volunteering is the giving of time and energy
Volunteering is all about choice… Your choice!

YOU CHOOSE the sort of volunteering you would like to do. It could be something you have always fancied doing or something new you would like to learn. Although you are not paid to volunteer there is a lot more to gain than money. Volunteering is a great way to...

  • meet new people
  • try out new and different things
  • make friends
  • help others
  • have fun
  • a route into employment
  • gain valuable experience for your CV
  • access training
  • pass your skills onto others
