What is Volunteering?

We define volunteering as any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment, the community or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives.

Central to this definition is the fact that volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual. This can include formal activity undertaken through public and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation.
