Hands togetherVolunteering is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn and develop new skills. You could also gain valuable work experience to take forward in other roles and future employment.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) has a wide range of volunteering opportunities, which differ both in terms of role and the commitment they require. These vary from constructing bridges on public rights of way to mentoring young people; from coaching in bowling, to providing respite for carers and families. You just have to decide what you would like to do.

"There is a great sense of satisfaction in seeing one's own recommendations translated into positive action! It's a great idea."

David Ball, Public Rights of Way volunteer
