Preparing for your volunteer advice appointment                                                       

You may find it useful to ask yourself a few questions before attending your volunteer advice appointment:

  • Why do you want to volunteer?
  • What do you want to gain from volunteering?
  • What times and days can you commit to volunteering?
  • What group of people would you like to help?
  • Would you like to volunteer near where you live or could you travel to another part of Southwark borough?
