We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
Each Police Scotland Youth Volunteer Group consists of 24 young people aged between 13 and 17 who each give up their own time to volunteer in their communities. As a youth volunteer, you would be expected to complete the PSYV Initial Training Programme which will prepare you for attending local and national volunteering events. The training contains multiple subjects across three units.
Police Scotland Youth Volunteers volunteer at numerous community events and activities and can assist Police Scotland at community events as well. The range of duties completed has been extensive.This is fantastic for any young person looking to gain experience in volunteering.
