Every community has a group - or a variety of groups - of people who help us in different ways. These organisations make many contributions to our communities.
Thinking of joining a community group? Here are some things to consider.
-What sections of the community benefit?
-Does this group need more publicity?
-How many people are involved with this group in your community?
-How well known is this group?
-Are there any dangers to volunteers?
-How often is this group called on to provide assistance?
-What are the needs of your local community?
-Do you have any personal experience with any of these groups?
