"What is the essence of life? To serve others and do good" Aristotle
Start360 recognises the important contribution volunteering makes to individuals, communities and wider society and looks to promote volunteering opportunities across all its services. Many of our staff started their caring careers through volunteering opportunities - building confidence & self-esteem; improving emotional health & well-being; learning new skills; gaining experience and developing a sense of purpose.
Potential volunteers will undertake an application and interview process with an AccessNI check to confirm suitability. Volunteers will complete an induction programme and Safeguarding training. Start360 promotes continuous professional development for all its staff and volunteers with access to training and ongoing support mechanisms.
Sean is one of our current volunteers,
"Dedicating time and giving to others has helped protect my mental and physical health as well as providing a sense of purpose. The social aspect of working for Start360 as a volunteer has helped me in making new friends, expanding my network and boosted my social skills. It has been a great way to gain experience working in a new field."
