Helping out - volunteering and community

Volunteering is when you choose to give your time to help others, either in your local community or elsewhere. It can take lots of different forms – formal or informal, individual or in groups, indoors or outdoors.

In this section you can find out how to become a volunteer and gain useful experience for your future.  You can learn about volunteering with libraries, for example helping them with the Summer Reading Challenge Volunteering and Duke of Edinburgh Volunteers.
