Leonard Cheshire Disability Scotland - Befriender

Leonard Cheshire Disability supports over 21,000 disabled people in the UK and works in 52 countries. They campaign for change and provide innovative services that give disabled people the opportunity to live their life, their way. This role is designed to enable users of the service to access all the other fun stuff within the community, as often as they wish! Though the role is Befriending, the day to day activity and environment is different depending on each match. Each volunteering match is found on a 1 to 1 basis- the Volunteer Coordinator considers location; personality match for user of service and volunteer; support need; mandatory training if there is any, and the extent of supervision and support available to the volunteer.

The Conservation Volunteers – Conservation Volunteer

As a volunteer with TCV you will take part in a variety of conservation projects. You will help maintain footpaths in local woodlands, create wildlife gardens, construct decking areas, control invasive species, help with tree planting and much more. Informal training is given throughout the opportunity as each new project begins. You will be working alongside other volunteers in a close-knit team in a friendly atmosphere. If you have a passion for the outdoors and the environment this is the role for you.
