Volunteer this summer
Local charities urgently need help over the summer holidays. You could volunteer to deliver sports and play activities for children, help at a foodbank providing food to families in need, befriend an isolated older person, or assist with the continued roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
All roles are local, and you only need to commit a couple of hours per week. As well as being hugely rewarding, volunteering is a great way to gain experience for a career in education, health and social care, or youth work.
