This is really up to you. You can find volunteering opportunities that only take one hour per month, to five days a week – or more.
Some roles are for one-off events, some are short term and others might need a six month commitment.
Certain roles like befriending require building up trust with someone, which is why a certain amount of commitment is required. Think carefully about the amount of commitment you are able to give before choosing your role.

CAN I MIX TWO OR MORE PROJECTS?
We generally recommend that volunteers primarily concentrate on one. However, we always have loads going on, so you will have plenty of opportunity to get involved with a range of projects depending on your interest.
