Suspect there's more to life than work? Want to put something back into society but don't know where to start? Or would you simply like to meet some new people and learn some new skills?
It might be climbing Kilimanjaro for charity or walking a neighbour's dog, campaigning against poverty or simply picking up the telephone to someone in need-18 million people in Britain give up their time for a good cause and many say it's the best thing they've ever done.
In this unique guide to the world of volunteering we tell you what to consider before taking the plunge and where to start looking for the opportunities that suit you best, both in the UK and overseas. Whether you can spare one hour a week, or the next 12 months, we can point you in the right direction. Whatever your age, life experience, or employment status, this fully comprehensive and practical handbook gives you all the information you need.
