Volunteering can be a great way of both supporting and improving the community in which you live, and of developing your own skills, confidence and sense of wellbeing.  People volunteer for a wide range of reasons, whether it be to improve your CV, as a placement through university, to 'give something back' or just to feel like you are doing something positive.  Whatever the reason, it can be a really positive thing to do, and a chance to make a real difference.

There are loads of opportunities to undertaking some volunteering in Reading, whether it be to support a one off activity or event, or to contribute a number of hours each week to a regular provision.
