The department’s Wellbeing for Learning and Life framework talks about how to promote the wellbeing and resilience of children. Volunteering can be a key part of this. It supports students’ learning and wellbeing. Volunteering gives students a way to:


  • develop social skills
  • explore possible career options
  • find their purpose and help others
  • connect with people in their community
  • increase their self-understanding, independence and confidence.
