Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering with Barnardo's is a great way to help vulnerable children and support families. Volunteers bring with them a range of skills, experience, and knowledge of their local community. In return, volunteers have the chance to develop skills and gain new experiences. Volunteering with us will:

  • Allow you to make a difference in your community;
  • Allow you to gain new experiences;
  • Build confidence through learning new skills;
  • Make new friends;
  • Enhance potential job opportunities;
  • Look great on your CV;
  • Be rewarding and fun;
  • Help more vulnerable children, young people and families.

With the support of the Volunteer Coordinator, you will be guided through the first few weeks with us. You will also receive on-going support and training throughout your time with us:

  • Full volunteer induction: including Safeguarding, Equality and Diversity, and Professional Boundaries;
  • Access to additional online training and development;
  • Regular supervision and support from the Hampshire Healthy Families 0-19 team whilst you are volunteering.
