Volunteering is an approach that is used by people who are disabled or the general public as a whole.
It can be used as a tool to get oneself known in a certain field or it can be used as a method of keeping oneself active.
I personally use it as method of keeping me active. I do it twice a week once in a museum and the other time in an office . I found it very satisfiying  and rewarding I found one via a scheme that was run by Mencap and the other via the Jewish Volunteering Network.
I truly recommend it as it can be enriching and beneficial. I enjoy what I am doing at both places. I  am writing articles for a newsletter in one place and indexing memrobilia artefacts in another.
If you want to know more about JVN please go to their website www.jvn.org.uk. They are really great as they try to find work that is suited for you.
