Bethany, one of our Policy & Research Volunteers chats us through the 6 things that she’s learnt in her time volunteering at Missing People so far and how volunteering remotely has meant she’s able to have full flexibility over her volunteer role, balancing it with her work and social life.
1. Volunteers provide vital support to Missing People
2. Volunteering opportunities can fit around your lifestyle
3. The social care system is under immense pressure and Missing People’s work is more important than ever
4. Volunteering looks great on your CV
5. What you get from the experience is up to how much you put in and how much you want to do
Outside of your core volunteer hours, you can choose to commit as much time to the charity as you wish.
6. You can make a real impact on the organisation and people it helps
We would like volunteers from across the UK to get involved and support the cause. We’ll have some new volunteer opportunities going up on our website in the coming weeks that are able to be done remotely so keep an eye out on our website here. Alternatively, you can also get involved with our Micro-Volunteering tasks which can be done anywhere in the UK and go a long way in raising awareness of the charity as well as specific missing people in your local area. A full list of our Micro-Volunteering tasks can be viewed here. If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Charlotte to find out more.
