Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is an activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives.

There are lots of different reasons why people volunteer to help local people, services and charities. Whether it is a chance to get to know new people, put something back into the community or to learn new skills, volunteering is a great way to improve not only the lives of other people but also your own.

Volunteering has a positive impact on a range of factors affecting health service users including their self-esteem, adoption of healthy behaviours, compliance with medical treatment and relationships with health care professionals.

Here at DSN, we are always looking for people to volunteer their services and skills to help D/deaf people, both young and old, in their local community.

If you are interested in volunteering with us or would like further information, please contact Lynne Bardsley, Volunteer Coordinator, or alternatively complete our online application form.
