Volunteering Step up, feel good!

Volunteering isn’t just good for the organisations and people you help – it can also transform your own mental wellbeing

Whether you decide to shout yourself hoarse at a charity cheer station during a marathon, join GoodGym and pay a running visit to help someone feel less isolated, or lead training runs for homeless people with The Running Charity, volunteering is an amazing way to contribute to your community – and also boost your own mental wellbeing.

“Studies suggest that helping others can have a positive impact on our mental health”, says Rachel Boyd, information manager at Mind. “It can improve self-esteem and give us a sense of purpose. Volunteering can also build new relationships with people in our communities, helping us to feel a greater sense of belonging. Research has shown that doing one act of kindness once a week over a sixweek period boosts our wellbeing.”
