How to choose a role

Many people who volunteer say that volunteering is the most rewarding thing they have ever done. Whilst for others it can be interesting but ultimately not as fulfilling. Choosing a role that fits with your lifetyle, interests, passions and skills is vital to finding a fulfilling volunteering experience. 

When choosing a role look for roles which fit your expectations, values and also with your practical plans.  Here are some things to consider:

  • The time you have available
  • Who you want to work with
  • What sort of commitment do you want to make
  • What do you want to get out of it
  • How far do you want to travel
