This December, 25 Linbrooke colleagues have been sorting through over 100 bags of donations at St Luke's charity shop in Sheffield and helped out at the Thornberry Animal Sanctuary to organise animal food donated by the public.
We understand that volunteering helps people develop new skills and build confidence. It also allows people to practice and develop existing skills, such as communication and problem-solving.
Giving back: Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of others.
Career development: Volunteering can help to gain experience and learn new skills.
Building relationships: Volunteering helps people to make new friends and build relationships.
Feeling of accomplishment: Volunteering can provide a sense of purpose and satisfaction by helping to make a positive impact in the lives of others.
Improved mental health: Volunteering has been linked to improved mental health, as it can provide a sense of purpose and connection, reduce stress, and increase happiness and well-being.
One of the many benefits of working at Linbrooke is that we provide our colleagues with a volunteering day to help them support the causes they believe in.
