Volunteering is where you carry out activities for free but get lots back in return. You’ll meet new people, make friends and gain lots of useful experience.

It will look good on your CV and can help you get a job, as well as giving you the chance to try out different careers.

Volunteering is much more than just making cups of tea at an office – from helping out at an animal sanctuary to football coaching, there are loads of volunteering opportunities out there for you.
