Volunteering Skills

Volunteering is not only a way to give back to the community but also an excellent opportunity to develop new skills or enhance existing ones.

In the UK, volunteering roles are incredibly diverse, allowing individuals to contribute in various ways while gaining valuable experience. This page provides information on the different skills that can be developed through volunteering, from soft skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving, to more specific skills related to particular volunteering roles, such as event planning, mentoring, or conservation work.

It also provides advice on identifying and utilising your existing skills in a volunteering context and how to effectively communicate these skills to potential employers or educational institutions.

Additionally, this page includes resources and recommendations for further skill development, including online courses, training programmes, and other educational opportunities that may benefit volunteers.

Whether you are looking to develop new skills, enhance your existing skillset, or explore new areas of interest, this page provides the necessary information and resources to make the most of your volunteering experience and maximise your personal and professional development.
