Why be a volunteer?

Volunteering is not simply about giving back to the community. It’s also about building connections, finding your purpose and wellbeing, and gaining valuable skills and experience. When you volunteer through Good Space, you’ll be awarded digital badges that reveal the skills, abilities and learning involved – so it’s a great way to show potential employers what you can do. We help everyone connect with volunteering roles that match their interests and abilities, and provide lasting benefits – not only for their communities but also for themselves.

Why we do what we do

We believe volunteering can be transformational for individuals and organisations. It enables people to connect with others, find purpose and wellbeing, and build skills and experience. We want people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to enjoy the benefits of volunteering, and we aim to tackle the barriers faced by people from disadvantaged backgrounds or with limited access to resources.

Organisations also benefit greatly from their volunteers’ energy, enthusiasm and inspiration. We help our partners develop and deliver successful volunteer programmes that meet their needs and enable them to increase their impact. We aim to create a more inclusive and connected society, where everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential and positively contribute to their community.

We encourage applications from people who are Deaf and disabled and will make reasonable adjustments wherever possible. This might include providing appropriate equipment or software, providing information in alternative formats, or providing opportunities to volunteer remotely.
