    Hello everyone,

    I'm not sure how volunteering is like in the UK, I've heard that some kind of volunteering jobs are paid but most people with which I've talked with have told me that you don't earn money at all.

    What am I supposed to do as a volunteer? Is it helpful to add experience to the curriculum?

    Thank you!!

    For it to be volunteering, you won't get a wage. You'd get expenses, if you've had to pay travel for example.

    What you're supposed to do, depends what your role is. So, for some, it's a charity shop, others it might be another role within a charity.
