As part of the lost/found team, respond to requests from the found cat volunteer to scan cats in your local area to establish if micro-chipped. In the event the cat has got a micro-chip providing the code to the coordinator in order for the owner to be found and contacted. As these cats are 'found' you may come under pressure from the person who has made the report to take the cat with you, you will be given details of the 'care-plan' agreed and will need to advise the person re the pen situation and that we will do our best but cannot give a date the cat will be taken in.
Supporting the existing Online Lost Cats Officer and Telephone Lost/Found Cats Officer during busy periods and times of absence. Being responsible for contacting members of the public who have made reports, giving advice on ways to help to find a lost cat or gathering information about found cats; implementing a 'care plan' for found cats whilst waiting for a space in a foster pen to open up. Liaising with 'Scanning Officers' to identify if found cats are micro-chipped, enabling the speedy reuniting of cat and family. This can be a challenging and emotional role but equally can be immensely rewarding when a cat is reunited with its family
As a home visitor, you will visit potential adopters in their home and offer them helpful information on basic cat care and the type of cats that would be suitable for their needs and environment. You will also work closely with other volunteers to identify suitable matches based on the information obtained from home visits.
At Moray Foodbank we feel it is important to include people from all walks of life as volunteers. Supported volunteers are people who have additional needs - such as social or learning difficulties, or mental health issues. We are looking for volunteers to 'buddy' with a less able volunteer to help them be able to be fully involved in the work of the Foodbank. Buddies will be able to commit to supporting someone for short-term placements and will be willing to volunteer themselves during periods where a buddy is not needed. Training, supervision and support will be provided. A PVG Scheme record check will be required on successful appointment.
TAKING PART. We're looking for active people to help us run our riding sessions. Minimum age is 12 but we have no upper limit provided you are reasonably fit. Our sessions run during the school term times from March to June and again from August to November so if you have a couple of hours to spare on Monday afternoons or Wednesdays and would like to do something really worthwhile we would love to hear from you. You don't have to be horsie, nor have previous experience working with disabled people, you just need enthusiasm, energy and a desire to help the riders enjoy their riding…. Oh, and a sense of humour and a pair of wellies are also a bonus! We need people to lead ponies, or walk at the side of some of our riders to give them confidence and encouragement.
THE OFFICIAL BIT: Full training will be given to all volunteers. As you will be working with children and vulnerable adults you must have a PVG in place before you can begin helping. We will organise this and there will be no cost to you.
As an adult interested in the Scout movement there are many ways you can help.

The only essential for a Therapet is a steady and happy temperament. The dogs are approved for temperament and general suitability before being accepted and are not considered until at least one year old.
Volunteer owners must become actual members of Canine Concern Scotland Trust, mainly for insurance reasons.
Volunteers must be willing to make a regular commitment to visit; it need not be very often, once a fortnight, once a month or whenever, but the visits must be regular because residents and patients look forward to them so much and are disappointed if they suddenly cease.
