With our busy lives, it can be hard to find the time to volunteer, however, the benefits of volunteering can be huge. Volunteers with Bradford Trident offer vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the local community. But you are not just helping the people that need it the most, you are also helping yourself. Once the volunteer co-ordinators find the right match for you, you will discover new friends, connect with your community, learn a new skill, and even set yourself up for a career.
The act of giving your time, caring for others can protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, and provide you with a sense of purpose. Which as the days all merge into one is the light at the end of the tunnel. The newfound focus will see you making strides in other areas of your life.
Because the heart of a volunteer is never measured in size, but in the depth of commitment to make a difference to the lives of others.
“We work with all our volunteers to ensure both they and the people they are helping get the most out of the service”
– Jennifer Scott Volunteer Co-ordinator
