Volunteering

Leeds Black Elders Association recognises the vital contribution that volunteers can make. We value this contribution and are committed to follow good practice guidelines. It should be acknowledged and recognised that volunteering should be a two way process. Not only does the volunteer contribute to the work of the organisation, but they can also gain something in return.

There are many reasons for volunteering, some which are:-

  • Volunteers can bring different perspectives to the work of the organisation, often one that reflects the views of clients and or the local community.
  • Volunteers bring credibility to an organisation. Giving their time for free, suggests that the work must be of value and they are giving something back to the community.
  • It is also a chance to meet new people, gain new skills and experience and a sense of satisfaction from the work they have done.
  • Gain invaluable work experience whether you are studying, employed or unemployed.  Many people find volunteering relaxing as it takes them away from their daily routine; others find it rewarding as they are helping those who really need and appreciate it; others have gained employment due to the skills and experience gained through volunteering.  
Whatever you're reason may be, please do not hesitate to contact one of the team to arrange a friendly chat.
