There are many opportunities to get involved in volunteering. As a volunteer you can choose how much time you are able to give and what sort of things you would like to do. Volunteers comprise a huge body of people who make an important social and economic contribution to communities worldwide. Volunteering takes lots of different forms — formal or informal, indoors or outdoors, practical or administrative.
If you are interested in volunteering, there are many different ways to get involved. You can contact local clubs in your area to see if they need anyone with your skills. Many volunteers get involved because they know someone already involved in a club, so check with friends or family members to see if they know of any clubs that might need volunteers.
