We hope you choose to become a volunteer for The Film & TV Charity knowing that giving up your time and energy is helping those individuals and families who really need support.
Here’s just a few more benefits of becoming a volunteer:
Use your talents skills and expertise for a great cause
When you’re good at something, you never feel like it’s work. Your passion or expertise may not even be part of your work, but by volunteering you have a chance to use your skills and expertise to help people who really need it. Maybe you’re a natural-born organiser or you’re great at talking to others. Whatever your talents, we’d love to have you on board.
A chance to give back
Many of our most dedicated volunteers have also been in a position where they received support from us at some point in their career. They know first-hand how it feels to be in that situation. We have volunteers working throughout the charity and across the country. Being part of the volunteering team and helping is one way of giving back and helping those who were once in their situation.
Develop new skills
Another great benefit to becoming a volunteer is being able to work alongside other who have experience and expertise from which you can learn. You have the opportunity to tried experiences you may have not tried before as well as gain new skills and talents that will serve you in your career and in life.
Be part of a team
Many of our volunteers sign up to help because they want to dedicate their time and effort to a great cause. However, many come back again and again because of the community and the great feeling that comes with work within a team. There really is nothing better when you have a team of great people around you and achieve something positive for the great cause together.
Meet new people
One of the best things about the Film & TV sector is its colourful cast of character in every part of in the industry. So many people you meet have deeply interesting stories and through volunteering you have an opportunity to be around and meet people who have huge amounts of experience and knowledge they love to share.
