Give to others
Participation in social and community life has attracted a lot of attention in the field of wellbeing research. Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy.
Research into actions for promoting happiness has shown that committing an act of kindness once a week over a six-week period is associated with an increase in wellbeing. Plus helping others will improve their wellbeing too!
There are a huge number of voluntary opportunities across Worcestershire regardless of how little or how much time you are able to give. The Bromsgrove and Redditch Network hosts the local Do-It volunteering website which can help guide you to suitable volunteering opportunities. You can also look at the Worcestershire County volunteering website as well for volunteering opportunities.
You can also take a look through our volunteering pages.
