Benefits of volunteering
Volunteering as a Visitor Guide at Safeside offers:
- The opportunity to contribute to the community on an issue you really care about and to make a difference
- An exciting new experience and an opportunity to do something completely different
- A chance to develop personal skills such as time management, communication and presentation skills
- The chance to meet and work with new people from other backgrounds
- The chance to develop transferable skills that can be used to access further training or employment
- The chance to gain experience and evidence for educational awards
- A chance to do something that is enormously enjoyable and rewarding
- A chance to become associated with the Fire Service and other key partner organisations
Volunteer Visitor Guides are provided with uniform and out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
