Volunteers have become an integral and highly valued part of the services Cornerstone provides to people with disabilities and additional support needs. Volunteers add an important extra dimension to the lives of people we support by extending and enhancing their circle of support and broadening the opportunities available, allowing them to enjoy life and feel part of their wider community.
This exciting opportunity for Volunteer Gardeners will contribute to this by helping to maintain our Allotment in Dumbarton East, work alongside our support practitioners and supported persons to develop gardening skills, growing plants/vegetables and any other creative gardening opportunities. This will encourage the people we support to enjoy time outside which can be of benefit to their health and wellbeing and create meaningful outcomes
