What is Volunteering?


The National Centre for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) defines volunteering as any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives.


At #TeamHerts Volunteering (#THV) we define volunteering as giving your time to a cause you feel passionate about and in return, you gain experiences and skills alongside the satisfaction of being part of something which impacts your community. 


There are countless ways in which to volunteer. If you have a skill, hobby or a passion, why not share this with others through volunteering in Hertfordshire? From coaching a sports team to campaigning for a health charity or devoting your time to youth work, there is a volunteer role for you.


If you would like more support working out what type of volunteering you would like to do, our free 'Introduction to Volunteering' workshop covers the basics around volunteering which will help you find the right volunteering opportunity. More info here.
