Diabetes Scotland and Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFL Trust). Volunteer

  • VO95798


Volunteer opportunity with Diabetes Scotland
We currently have an opportunity to volunteer with us and support our community outreach work with the Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFL Trust).
The SPFL Trust offers 13-week exercise programmes for people who are deemed at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. These programmes are delivered by the SPFL Trust football coaches at the participating football clubs.
We are looking for volunteers to attend the final session and talk to the participants, using a provided script, about the seriousness of diabetes and to signpost the participants to the appropriate NHS pathways.

Organisation aims and objectives

Diabetes UK is the largest patient charity in Scotland. Our mission is to improve the lives of people with diabetes and to work towards a future without diabetes. We are based in Glasgow and have a network of individual volunteers and voluntary groups across Scotland and are looking to expand the numbers of volunteers to continue to raise awareness of the condition which affects an increasing number across Scotland. We are looking for volunteers across all areas of our work including public relations, media and health board engagement.
