Have you thought about volunteering?
Volunteering is about giving your time to do something useful, without getting paid (apart from expenses).
In return you get the satisfaction of time and effort well spent. In addition, volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills gain useful experience. It should also be fun!
The range of opportunities is huge. Whatever skills and experience you have, there is something that you can do.
There are organisations across Gloucestershire who can help you find the right opportunity whether you have a couple of hours a month to help someone who is housebound or whether you have several hours a week to pass on your business skills.
TimeBank is a national charity inspiring and connecting a new generation of people to volunteer in their communities, and enabling charitable organisations and businesses to effectively recruit volunteers.
