Happy, healthy giv­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

NEARLY ev­ery vol­un­teer Vol­un­teer­ing WA has ever in­ter­viewed says they al­ways get more out of vol­un­teer­ing than they give.

Re­search fur­ther proves this by show­ing peo­ple who vol­un­teer are hap­pier and health­ier, demon­strat­ing in­creased feel­ings of self-worth, sat­is­fac­tion and con­nect­ed­ness which leads to bet­ter health and well­be­ing.

Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity can search for a suit­able po­si­tion they feel pas­sion­ate about at Vol­un­teer­ing WA'S web­site.

There is a key­word and lo­cal­ity func­tion to make it easy to find the per­fect op­por­tu­nity.

There are also many vol­un­teer re­source cen­tres across WA that hold reg­u­lar “step into vol­un­teer­ing” ses­sions and pro­vide sup­port to vol­un­teer-in­volv­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions.
