Q: How much time is involved? A: The great thing about volunteering is that it’s so varied and flexible you can usually find something to fit in with your lifestyle. It needn’t be the same day or time every week, it could be for a one-off event, a short project or a regular activity. Or you may have some spare moments when you could help from home. Before you start volunteering have a think about when, how often and how long you want to volunteer for. Then search for opportunities which match up to what you want to do.
