Like any other charity or voluntary organisations, Dundee Stroke Exercise Club depends on its volunteers to be able to deliver the services we offer to stroke survivors. So the opportunity we have for a Volunteer Coordinator is an important one at the Club.
As Volunteer Coordinator you will be involved with assessing the need for volunteers for the Club’s general operations and special events, recruiting and training volunteers and recognising the work they do. You will be involved with organising Volunteer Rotas, reimbursing out of pocket expenses, and offering suitable development opportunities for the Volunteers. You will also be involved in reporting back to the Club Committee.
Dundee Stroke Exercise Club collaborates with Leisure & Culture Dundee delivering life-changing classes across the city. We offer rehabilitation classes for all ages & abilities helping stroke survivors regain their confidence and fitness to help them on the road to recovery. At Dundee Stroke Exercise Club all our classes are carried out with trained staff and an excellent group of volunteers (who are all stroke survivors) who help each individual realise that they are not alone.
