Young volunteers

Volunteering can be a great way to learn and develop new skills, gain experience for future employment and 'give back' to an organisation that has previously offered support. It's also a great way to get to know and help your local community.

Why volunteer?

Rosie's story

Rosie volunteers with the NCH&C NHS Trust in the Stroke Rehabilitation Ward in Norwich. In the video on the right she explains why she would recommend volunteering to a friend. She was 16 at the time of recording, but she feels that volunteering has given her confidence that she can draw on in all areas of life.
