Its a fact! Doing good makes you feel good!
Volunteer Now is giving you an opportunity to continue the feel good factor beyond Christmas and extend your wish to give to others and be more generous with your time. See our calendar of one off volunteer opportunities organised across Newry & Mourne, Armagh and Dungannon areas between the months of January and February 2017.
I would like you to consider getting your clients, members, colleagues or groups you support, involved in one of these activities and enjoy the feel good factor of giving. You can give as little as 1h up to a full day (5h), there’s something to suit everybody! Some of these activities can be changed/adapted to suit your group needs so please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Turn up and try!
The project aims to encourage more people, particularly those with mental health issues, to get involved in voluntary work. By participating they will avail of the key benefits of volunteering which align to the New Economics Foundation’s Five Ways to Wellbeing model – Connect…Be Active…Take notice…Keep learning….Give….
The project will provide opportunities for people to participate in a series of Turn Up and Try volunteering days. These days will be tailored to best suit the needs of the individuals participating. Individuals taking part in the day will be supervised at all times by a member of Volunteer Now staff. Taking part will allow individuals to experience the benefits of volunteering and encourage them to undertake more, whether other one-off activities or a regular volunteering role, if they wish so.
