The new year is a time of new beginnings and opportunities. People often decide to start a new chapter in their lives - or perhaps revisit an old one. But whatever you want to do in 2019, have you considered volunteering as a way of achieving your goals?
Whether you want to learn new skills, change your career, make new friends or simply have more fun, volunteering can be an effective way of doing so.
There are thousands of volunteering opportunities just waiting for you on www.do-it.org - and you'll be in good company. Did you know that about one third of people in Cornwall regularly volunteer? That's one of the highest rates in the country!
We also have a "DIY" guide to volunteering to help you find a placement which you can download here
And do let us know where your volunteering takes you, we always love to hear your stories.
