Why volunteer with us?
High hopes for Halliwellbeing is making a positive difference in people's lives.Volunteering might cost you time and effort, but the satisfaction of seeing people thrive is wonderful and precious, I love going home knowing that I've helped other people feel valued and important, that I can be proud of what we can achieve together.
Community centres are places to belong, that has a massive impact on our volunteers as well as our centre users. If you want to reconnect with people in your area, volunteering is a brilliant way to really belong.
Volunteering is always a great place to learn transferable skills, and get some experience, they'll be people around to help and support you but also space for you to try out new things! And all this experience looks great on a CV too.
What could I do?
Because we do a diverse range of activities, there is loads of opportunities which could fit with your personality and interests from sports to crafts, children to old people, people jobs, admin jobs or building jobs!
