Volunteering - a great way to give back

Scouting across Wokingham is managed and run all by volunteers. Some people offer skills to support the Groups in the background whilst others share or lead a section. We can only support our Young people with these great volunteers and are always looking for new faces.
If you think you have a skill to offer part time or on a weekly basis please look at the job roles we could offer you today by clicking this image.

Volunteering is good for you

New research has shown that volunteering has a hugely positive impact on the lives of those who volunteer in the charity sector, but their efforts are not always supported by employers. According to the research, the majority of volunteers reported having improved life satisfaction (70%) and self-esteem (66%) since beginning volunteer work, as well as having reduced feelings of loneliness (42%) and stress (33%). Nearly two thirds (65%) also said that since beginning volunteer work they have developed useful employability skills; with 59% saying they feel more confident and 54% feeling more motivated in their jobs.
