Calling all volunteers!
This year is the 30th anniversary of National Volunteers’ Week, which takes place 1-7 June and it’s time to celebrate!
Lambeth citizens give a great deal to the community all year round, during June we want to celebrate this and get others involved. We are also encouraging more Lambeth Council staff to volunteer locally.
Volunteering not only benefits wider society, but it is good for you:
- It can help you develop marketable skills
- It can help you build new networks
- It can boost your social life
- It can even help you live longer!
As you might expect in a borough like Lambeth there are a diverse range of opportunities for volunteering across different areas of the borough, interests and to suit all skills and abilities. The time commitment can fit around your lifestyle and does not have to be regular or use hours and hours of your time.
We will be posting opportunities here on the Love Lambeth blog during June and beyond. Volunteer Centre Lambeth exists to help match you with the right volunteering opportunity and you can also visit www.do-it.org.uk to search for something yourself.
You can share your experiences on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lambethchampions
