Volunteering is an incredibly positive way to give back to the community and a great way to do a little bit of personal development.

Learn or develop a new skill

Volunteering is the perfect vehicle to discover something you are really good at and develop a new skill. It is never too late to learn new skills and no reason why you should stop adding to your knowledge or skill set just because you are in employment or have finished education. 

Be part of your business community

We sometimes take for granted the community that we live in. Volunteering is ultimately about helping others and having an impact on people’s wellbeing. What better way is there to connect with your community and give a little back?

Motivation and sense of achievement

Fundamentally, volunteering is about giving your time, energy and skills freely. Unlike many things in life there is choice involved in volunteering. As a volunteer you have made a decision to help on your own accord, free from pressure to act from others. Volunteers predominantly express a sense of achievement and motivation, and this is ultimately generated from your desire and enthusiasm to help.

At the Chamber we have a number of volunteer committees, as well as a volunteer board.

Our volunteer opportunities include:
