Why volunteering is good for our health and wellbeing

Have you ever considered giving up a small amount of your time to get involved in helping others or improving your local environment or supporting a good cause? 

Volunteering is one of the five ways to wellbeing and it is a great way to try something new, gain new experiences and help others in your community.  Giving something back can also help you with:

  • Becoming more active
  • Connecting with new people and making new friends
  • Enhancing your mental health
  • Improving your self-esteem
  • Gaining a sense of achievement

Want to get started volunteering?

You can find out about local volunteering opportunities at Greater Manchester Volunteer Inspire Programme or if you need our help to find suitable opportunities for you, request support from our Live Well Service.
