Benefits of becoming a Reaching Out volunteer
Whether as a disabled young person or a support worker, being a PACT volunteer can help you and your community in many ways. You will:
- learn and develop skills
- meet new, interesting people
- gain a qualification
- make a positive contribution to your community
- challenge prejudice and assumptions about disabled people; and
- have a lot of fun.
You can volunteer for a couple of hours on a single day, for a few weeks, for a couple of months or even longer.
