Benefits of volunteering

Volunteering is a rewarding and sometimes challenging experience. It offers people the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

There are many reasons why people choose to volunteer which includes:

  • Giving something back to an organisation that has impacted on their life, either directly or indirectly.
  • Making a difference to the lives of others.
  • To feel valued and part of a team.
  • Spending quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle.
  • Gaining confidence and self-esteem.
  • Meeting new people and making new friends.
  • A chance to socialise.
  • Getting to know the local community.

Our volunteer support

As a volunteer you play an important part in delivering services within Tricuro. It is important that as a volunteer you receive supervision while you are volunteering with us.

  • Supervision is a chance for you to tell us what you think of the role you are undertaking with Tricuro.
  • During this time you can tell us how the role is working for you and whether you need some help or guidance.
  • You can discuss any additional training needs you might be interested in.
  • It provides an opportunity to discuss any problems or difficulties you may be experiencing and to find solutions.
  • It is a chance to discuss personal development and celebrate success!
