Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to improve your health and wellbeing. Research has shown that volunteering can really give your mental and physical wellbeing a boost. As well as improving confidence, giving something back to your community can keep you active and help you to meet new people leading to a greater sense of wellbeing. The NHS lists a number of health benefits relating to volunteering, including improved quality of life, improved ability to cope with ill health and improved self-esteem. 

If you have spare time on your hands you can make a big difference in your local community. Take a look at the volunteer options we have at wyre. 

There are opportunities in our parks, theatres, countryside and more, plus we are looking for volunteers to support vulnerable adults who are socially isolated and living within local communities. This type of befriending offers support and friendship to people who may be living at home, housebound or who might just need help on a short term basis. Just a few hours a week can make a real difference to someone’s life. If you could be that friend for somebody we’d like to hear from you.
