Once again a new year rolls around and we resolve to improve something about ourselves - get fit, start a hobby, get to know your colleagues better. Sometimes with resolutions we can fall at the first hurdle, when we don't know how to start it. According to YouGov 63% of people will break their resolution and 60% of those do so be February. If you are struggling with your resolution, have you considered volunteering might be able to help?

Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, get active, and to try new things. Often people are surprised by the sheer volume of opportunities they can get involved with.

Volunteer Cornwall can help support you into volunteering in numerous ways. We help to manage opportunities for Cornwall on do-it.org.uk, we can assist people with additional needs to help them find suitable placements for their requirements, we run a young person's timebank aimed at rewarding 11-19 year olds for getting involved in volunteering, and we also run corporate volunteering projects which allows people to get try volunteering for a day along side their colleagues and bosses as part of a team building exercise.

Volunteering is a great way to keep up your new year's resolutions. If you have any questions about volunteering please feel free to leave a message on this blog.
