If you want to get out and do something positive there are lots of organisations and groups that run projects. Keep an eye out on notice boards in places such as your local library, shops or leisure centre for information on groups/clubs where you can help out or taking part in activities. If you get a local paper, have a read and see if there are any opportunities out there for you.
There are things you could do, either volunteering or joining a group. For example, you could volunteer to tidy the local park or help out with the local scout group or alternatively join the local history group or help run the local children’s football team. There are lots of things you can do to get out; you just need to keep an eye out for opportunities.
