World Wellbeing Week 2021 – Connected
We care about your wellbeing and understand that connecting with others creates a sense of belonging.
Volunteering is a great way to stay social and connected and it can also help you gain valuable new skills and experiences and boost your confidence!
Did you know? Over the past 12 months:
- We’ve awarded £60,343 in funding and supported 110 community groups to deliver activities in communities and benefited over 1,387 tenants and residents
- Over 2,519 hours were volunteered by 73 tenants and customers and this included 24 new volunteers
If you’re looking for a way to stay social, and to connect with other people, then give volunteering a go! It could be a great way for you to make new friends and make a real difference to people who need a bit of extra help and support.
As well as helping others, volunteering can have a positive impact on your health and wellbeing. Giving something back to your community, whether that be your time or your skills, can boost your feelings of happiness and make you feel good.
