New year? Why not volunteer?

Font Size:

The start of a new year is often a time when we consider how we can better ourselves by being healthier, learning a new skill or by being more selfless. Volunteering is a great way to achieve all three while giving something back to the community.

There are many ways to volunteer – online, your local op shop, your favourite charity or even overseas if travel takes your fancy. YOURLifeChoices has many articles on the value of volunteering, both to you and your chosen organisation. For more information on volunteering in a chosen sector, read our articles below.
