Volunteering can significantly enhance mental well-being. Engaging in regular volunteer activities, even as little as 100 hours per year or 2 hours per week, has been linked to reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety. This is due to the social connections and sense of purpose that volunteering provides, which can boost mood and overall mental health.

Regular volunteering can lead to better physical health outcomes. Studies have shown that individuals who volunteer frequently have lower rates of hypertension and greater functional ability. The physical activity involved in volunteering, combined with the stress-reducing benefits of helping others, contributes to improved physical health.

Volunteering has been associated with increased lifespan. The combination of physical activity, social engagement, and mental stimulation that comes from volunteering can contribute to a longer, healthier life. Research suggests that people who volunteer regularly have lower mortality rates than those who do not, even when controlling for factors such as age and health status.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is an excellent way to meet new people, as well as develop and gain new skills, which you can use for your cv!

Our volunteers are an integral part of The A World UK, they help us to support the autistic community by assisting our staff members with the day to day running of our community stores. 

Thinking of joining out team? Whether you are able to spare a few hours or a few days each week we are extremely grateful for the additional help you would provide.
