Make a difference to your community and Volunteer this National Volunteers’ Week

This National Volunteers’ Week (1 – 7 June), Hampshire County Council is promoting the wide range of volunteering opportunities available across its services.

Hampshire County Council Leader, Councillor Keith Mans, said:

Volunteers play an important role in Hampshire and we are very grateful to them for their time and dedication. There are a variety of volunteering roles across the County Council and there really is something suitable for everyone – whether it’s out on the road as volunteer drivers, helping mentor our young people, supporting the elderly, or supporting our country parks, county archives and libraries.

Not only does volunteering boost the wellbeing of our communities, but it also brings a raft of positive benefits – skills, friendships and sense of achievement – to the individual.

My thanks go to all of our dedicated, hard-working volunteers who are making a real and positive difference every day.
