As well as more traditional volunteer roles, there are many very small, ‘micro’ volunteering tasks that you might be able to do in spare moments. Winter in particular is going to be very different this year for all of us. We can all help to spread some “Winter Kindness”. The Mental Health Foundation has put together some simple acts of kindness that might make you and those around you feel a bit brighter. Take a read here.
