Become a volunteer

Volunteering can help you make friends, learn new skills, advance your career, and even feel happier and healthier. As a community organisation, My Network for Women promotes volunteer opportunities improving the lives of local people in our community.

Why volunteer?

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.

Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.

Consider your goals and interests

The opportunities that match both your goals and your interests are most likely to be fun and fulfilling.
