Volunteering in your local community
There are so many ways you can make a big difference in your community from small acts of kindness, to giving up your free time to help support a local community project, we can all help make things better for people around us.
Any individual or group can volunteer. It can be very rewarding and is a great way to meet new people, gain new or use existing skills and experience.
You could become a community litter champion, assisting at your local warm space hubs, become a Councillor, helping in your local area or making a regular commitment to volunteer with a charity or community group.
Young people can also volunteer either at school or in their own time. If you are aged 16 or 17 you can take part in the National Citizen Service (NCS).
