Volunteers Week 2023



Volunteers Week is an annual celebration dedicated to the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.


It's a chance for us all to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and to say, thank you!


We're incredibly blessed at Cloverleaf to have an amazing dedicated team of volunteers that help us to deliver peer support groups and services to the people we help across the North of England. 


As we look to expand our support out in the community, we are opening up lots more opportunities to welcome new volunteers to join us. From helping with event planning, fundraising, awareness raising and group support, we feel sure we can find a role that suits everyone. 


There are so many benefits to volunteering. Not just for the causes and projects where you give your time but in terms of the new connections, skills, confidence and job prospects that volunteering opens up.  


Here are our top five benefits of volunteering


1. connects you to your community

Volunteering can help you to feel more connected to the community you live in. Meeting people you would not usually come across in your day-to-day life helps build connections with others and supports a more empathic society. 


2. helps you make new friends

Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends. It also helps to build on existing connections with family or coworkers. You'll have the opportunity to interact with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures and with different lived experiences to you. 


3. builds your self-esteem

Many volunteers report that their self-esteem and confidence improve. When you feel that you are doing something worthwhile and valuable, it gives you a sense of fulfilment and purpose. Interacting with people outside your usual circle is great for your personal growth.


4. opens up new job prospects

Along with picking up valuable new skills and experience, many volunteers make new connections that can lead to job opportunities. Whether you are looking to work in the area you volunteer in or another sector, the skills you learn all add real value to your prospects. 


5. learn valuable skills

Training and hands-on experience gained while you volunteer can bring huge benefits. Learning about fundraising, event planning, and group facilitating all teach valuable communication, public speaking and marketing skills that you can carry forward in your personal or professional life.
