Get Involved

Our mission is to be at the heart of our local community by providing invaluable services, thus improving quality of life and raising aspirations. We wish to enable and empower local people, and to continue to raise funds to enable us to do this.

 

 

Get Involved

There are many opportunities for you to get involved in at Bentilee Volunteers.......but why should you volunteer? Well we can think of 6 great reasons:

 

  1. Volunteering helps you connect with others and the local community
  2. Gives you valuable work experience and transferable skills
  3. Helps you combat depression and improve mental health
  4. Builds your confidence, motivation and helps give a sense of achievement
  5. Gives you access to personal development and training opportunities
  6. Knowing that you’re truly valued and appreciated for what you do
