Volunteering can mean many things to many people. With the mobile lifestyle that life connected to the Armed Forces can bring, the right match in finding a volunteering role can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.
Through volunteering you can play an active role in society and contribute to positive social change.
If it’s a step into a new career you are looking for, volunteering can help you gain experience in your area of interest and meet people in the field. Even if you’re not planning on changing careers, volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, project planning, task management and organisation.
Giving to others can also improve your quality of life and self-esteem. It can help to maintain your mental and physical health and reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated and provide a sense of purpose.
