Tuxford Mine of Information supports and celebrates volunteering in all its diversity. Volunteering involves spending unpaid time doing something to help other people or groups. Evidence suggests that volunteering benefits to both the volunteers and the people they help.
Volunteering doesn’t just work one way. A study by the Royal Voluntary Service found that volunteering in later life decreased depression and social isolation.
It was also found to boost quality of life and life satisfaction. It’s a great way to meet people and this can be vital for older volunteers and people who might be isolated or not particularly integrated into society.
Volunteering is great for self-esteem and motivation and improved self-esteem can have an effect on other areas of your health and life.
