The spirit of volunteering has been a vital part of the social fabric for as long as there has been, well, a social fabric. Whenever neighbour helped neighbour, or people got together to improve something, the spirit of volunteering is what moved them.

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right match can help you find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Volunteering can also help protect your mental and physical health.

Whether it’s big or small, time or money, we all have something to give.
