A recent major research study for NCVO found that ‘wanting to improve things or help people’ is the most common reason people started volunteering. However, for younger people, it is also about gaining new skills.
Here are some of the reasons people choose to volunteer:
To give something back to an organisation that has impacted on a person’s life, either directly or indirectly
To make a difference to the lives of others
To help the environment
To help others less fortunate or without a voice
To feel valued and part of a team
To spend quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle
To gain confidence and self-esteem.
