The Sheffield Volunteering Fair is back, on Monday 16th March at Hallam Hall from 11am – 3pm, and is the place to be to find out about volunteering. There will be over 30 charities and organisations, looking for volunteers to support them in the invaluable work they do.
People interested in volunteering for the first time, or those looking for a new role, are encouraged to come along and find out more. Whatever their skills or experience, there will be a volunteer role to suit them. From gardening to befriending, helping with events to fundraising, there will be something for everyone to get involved in this autumn.
Volunteering is a great way for people to share their skills or learn new skills, gain relevant experience for work or study, and to pursue hobbies and interests, as well as being a fantastic way to make a worthwhile difference within the community. Volunteering can help contribute to good mental health and wellbeing no matter which stage people are at in life. This could be through reducing isolation and stress, providing a sense of achievement and pride, increasing mental and physical activity, or just being a way to meet people and have fun. The Volunteering Fair is a great way to find out how to get involved, and how to make a difference.
Charities at the Volunteering Fair will represent many different causes, such as health and social care, arts and heritage and animal welfare. A full list of charities attending the Fair will soon be available online:
