What sort of volunteering can I do?
We want you to be inspired to volunteer, so if there’s something you want to get involved with, then you can.
If you’re unsure, here’s a few ideas:
Attending VMCA meetings (what is VMCA?); beach cleans; help out at other local clubs of your choice, like Scouts, Duke of Edinburgh, a sports team, youth groups, homeless charities or mental health charities.
You’ll also attend a local council meeting or be part of a community project.
