Summary/Abstract: One of the forms of rehabilitation is social work. Activities for the benefit of other people not only allows for the formation of pro-social aitudes, but also enhances one’s sense of worth and gives meaning to one’s life. Of particular importance in the context of crystallization of civil society is voluntary work. Although widely applied in Poland for many years now, voluntary work has gained its contemporary meaning a er 1989 and since then has been implemented mostly, but not exclusively, in the third sector. These days, the major Polish cities form Regional Volunteer Centers that encourage activities for other people on many levels. Voluntary work is regulated by law and moral standards, which define the range and forms of this type of activity.
