Monday 5th December is International Volunteers Day, it was created by the United Nations in 1985 as an international day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteering. 

At Scope, we celebrate our wonderful volunteers, we have nearly 10,000 people who volunteer with us in England and Wales. 

Volunteering offers you lots of benefits, from meeting new people, learning new skills, and doing something you love. If you're unemployed, volunteering can help boost your skills, confidence and your CV. Plus the chance to really make a difference to a cause you care about.

There are so many ways you can get involved with volunteering for Scope, from charity shops, the befriending service and on the online community. You can search for available volunteer roles within Scope here.
