The County Council values the contribution that volunteers make to its work. There are a range of reasons why you may want to volunteer for the council, for example, it can improve your employment prospects and help you to gain new skills, knowledge and experience. Volunteering can also increase your self-esteem, give you a chance to meet new people and help you to get to know your local community. Volunteering is an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of others and the community you live in.
