VOLUNTEER FAIR – OCTOBER 10TH 10am TO 4pm at Sheffield Town Hall

28 Sep

 

Volunteer Fair 1Volunteer Fair 2

On Tuesday 10th October, the Town Hall is the place to be for potential volunteers in Sheffield. Our Volunteering Fair will take place in the iconic building, where there will be over 60 charities to meet visitors interested in becoming volunteers. Sheffield Lord Mayor, Anne Murphy, will also be attending to talk about the importance of volunteering in Sheffield.

One of the main reasons people give for volunteering is to help others and give back, and it is a great way to make a worthwhile difference within the community. Volunteers can share their skills and also learn new skills, gain relevant experience for work or study, or pursue hobbies and interests.

Organisations at the Fair will include those working; with children and on youth projects, with refugees and asylum seekers, in victim support and recovery, housing and homelessness, health and recovery from illness, in the arts and heritage, environment, education, social care, disability, information services and more. There are many opportunities in different areas, which the charities will be able to talk directly with visitors about.

 

The Volunteering Fair falls on World Mental Health Day, and there are many ways that volunteering can help improve mental health and wellbeing. This could be through increasing mental and physical activity, reducing isolation and stress, providing a sense of achievement and pride, or just being a way to meet people and have fun.

As this is Sheffield Volunteer Centre and Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union’s first joint Volunteering Fair, Volunteer Centre Advisors will be on-hand to talk to visitors about volunteering. The Students’ Union will also have stalls on student-led projects for Hallam University students to get involved in.

Volunteering is for everyone, and there will be a wealth of opportunities at our Volunteering Fair.
