Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to your community, meet people and feel a sense of belonging.
Volunteering can provide a sense of purpose and achievement. It can help you feel you are part of the community and help you feel better about yourself. You can share your talent and learn new skills. You can meet new people and experience the joy of being around others.
We spoke to volunteers from emergency services to find out: why they love volunteering, what the benefits of volunteering are and why they think more people should consider volunteering.
