Volunteering is time willingly to help someone else without being paid. It can be formal or informal. Informal volunteering includes helping friends and family with things like babysitting, home repairs or caring. Formal volunteering usually takes place through a charity or other not-for-profit or community organisation.

Volunteering can be very meaningful and enjoyable and in turn, be good for your mental health and wellbeing. It strengthens your ties to the community and exposes you to people with similar interests and because volunteering keeps you in regular contact with others, it can also help you develop a solid support base.
