Why you should become a People ConneX volunteer

11 May 2022

Becoming a People ConneX volunteer is a great way to make new friends and help others at the same time. You can put your spare time to good use and you can learn new skills.

What does a People ConneX volunteer do?

Some of our volunteers help with fundraising by collecting money at local supermarkets. Other volunteers help out at community events such as lunches, shows, talks and trips.

If you enjoy nature or gentle exercise, why not volunteer to accompany People ConneX members on walks? People ConneX volunteers also help out by taking leaflets to libraries, shops and local businesses.

Would I make a good People ConneX volunteer?

Anybody who has these values could become a valuable member of the the People ConneX team.

Empathy: you know that people feel lonely and you understand it’s important to bring people together.

Adaptability: you find it easy to help everybody. You know how to work alongside people with different needs from different backgrounds.

Responsibility: people can rely on you to do the things you have agreed to do.
