      1. Get transferable skills and work experience

      Volunteering gives you the opportunity to learn about teamwork, communication, resilience and taking initiative – useful skills in any workplace.

      2. Enhance your CV

      Volunteering demonstrates your motivation and commitment and helps your CV stand out.

      3. Get a qualification

      As a volunteer you can work towards an NOCN (National Open College Network ) qualification called 'Understanding Hearing Loss', part of the NOCN-accredited training module ‘Working with People who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing’.

      4. Meet new people

      You'll be joining a friendly team of like-minded people. By volunteering, you'll get to meet people from all walks of life and be part of your local community.

      5. Do something you enjoy

      Spending time doing things we love helps us feel more fulfilled and motivated.

      6. Try something new

      Volunteering’s a great way to expand your horizons and try something new: campaigning, giving talks to community groups, organising an event, providing advice…

      7. Build your confidence

      You'll be meeting new people and trying new things. You might have to take initiative or solve problems. You'll be doing something useful and productive with your free time. These are all great confidence boosters.

      8. Stay active and healthy

      Doing some good is good for you. Volunteering is good for the mind, body and soul, and can help with stress, anxiety and depression.

      9. Make a difference to people in your community

      You can help us make a real difference to people affected in your community by sharing your skills, experience, energy, enthusiasm and commitment.

      10. Help us shape the future

      Our vision is a world where deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss do not limit or label people. We're very ambitious about shaping a better future for the 11 million people who are deaf or have hearing loss across the UK. We couldn’t do it without the support of our wonderful volunteers.
