VOLUNTEERING IS FOR EVERYONE
Age, ability and experience are not barriers to volunteering. There’s nothing to stop you volunteering and Better are looking for enthusiastic people who are willing to spare their time. Better will support you with an induction and training to enable you to develop new skills.
Volunteering doesn’t have to mean a big commitment. You can volunteer as frequently as you wish to, whether that is a few hours a year or every week. Better can help you find the right opportunity to fit around your life.
Better offer volunteer opportunities in physical activity and community champion roles in Barnet.
“The best thing for me is when we get people who are on their own joining us, either because they have heard about us or been referred to us. It gives them the opportunity to walk with other people instead of on their own, or maybe they have moved into the area, and it's a good way of getting to know the town and people, and within a few meetings they have made new friends. We're a very friendly group and it's nice to see everybody mixing with other people that they may not have known before. I suppose in one way we are a community and they will all help each other if needed.”
