It can be a great way to:
- Build confidence

Wrexham Volunteer Centre helps people find volunteering opportunities and has lots of information on local organisations needing your support.
Sometimes you may not be able to volunteer immediately. There may be a group start date, or you may need to wait for references and checks to be completed.
If you want to volunteer with vulnerable people or children, organisations will carry out a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Although, if you do have a conviction this will not automatically exclude you from volunteering. Wrexham Volunteer Centre will be able to give personal advice for potential volunteers.
Whilst you're waiting, why not visit www.volunteering-wales.net, the online database of volunteering opportunities in Wales.
