Here are six reasons to volunteer with Action on Hearing Loss in 2019:
- take on a new challenge – whether you’re delivering a presentation, re-tubing a hearing aid or leading a fundraising collection, learn new skills and benefit from accredited training
- meet new people – volunteering is a great way to meet people from all walks of life and make new friends. Get involved in your community and celebrate with us at our Volunteer awards and Christmas party
- make a difference – Volunteers are the lifeblood of Action on Hearing Loss and are essential for us to deliver our services in Northern Ireland. Many of our volunteers have a hearing loss themselves, meaning they can empathise with service users and make a real difference
- improve your mental health and wellbeing – research shows that volunteering can reduce stress, improve your emotional wellbeing and even benefit your physical health.
- we’re accredited – Our Investing in Volunteers accreditation shows our commitment to a high standard of volunteering to ensure you get as much out of your experience as we do
- our volunteers recommend us - 94% of our volunteers find their role motivating and interesting and 97% say we provide a good service to people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss
