New volunteers receive an induction into their new role, and experienced volunteers who have been involved for a while will share some of their experience and advice.
What can I expect from volunteering?
You will experience the satisfaction of knowing you are providing a vital service to the community.
You will make new friends, learn new skills, and probably grow in self-esteem and confidence.
Your involvement will brighten the lives of others and make a real difference in your community
