It’s a Work of Heart – A little of your time can make a big difference
The benefits of volunteering can be enormous, both for you and your local community. Whether you want to meet people and make new friends, learn a new skill, build your self-confidence, improve your self-worth or even advance your career. It’s also a lot of fun!

Voluntary roles also benefit those with a disability or lack of social skills and help reduce isolation. Your age and circumstances don’t matter you simply need passion, positivity, integrity and a desire to help.

Volunteering covers almost every possible activity you can think of from making the tea to specialist technical work. Visit the Volunteer Essex website at or use the search tool on the right hand side to see what roles are available local to where you live – you will find something!
