Volunteers are amazing! They give up their time, without payment, to help the community around them. They make a massive difference and ensure that much needed services are provided in the local area.
Volunteers help to reduce isolation and loneliness, help people remain independent, happy and healthy, and provide comfort and support to those in difficulty or distress. Without them many charities and community groups would not exist.
