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.

WW100 Volunteer

  • VO79592


Description

The main part of the WW100 Exhibition is a visual interpretation of 100 stories of people and events for the first world war, created by 100 young people from across Scotland. The exhibition uses traditional printmaking techniques, combined with innovative technology.

As a WW100 Volunteer you will support the delivery of the WW100 exhibition when it's in your area. This could see you any of: welcoming members of the public and groups visiting the exhibition on arrival; dealing politely and professionally with queries from those visiting; identifying any problems (both potential and actual) and informing the staff as they arise; maintaining and replenishing resources as required; assisting with evaluation of WW100 exhibition by encouraging feedback and collecting data; undertaking duties ad-hoc as requested by the exhibition team; supporting the staff team in setting up and down each day.

Organisation aims and objectives

Poppyscotland provides life-changing support to our Armed Forces community. We reach out to those who have served, those still serving, and their families at times of crisis and need by offering vital, practical advice, assistance and funding. We believe that those who serve or have served, whether regular or reserve, are deserving of our support to live life fully without disadvantage after service. No veteran should live without the prospect of employment, good health and a home, and we all have a part to play in achieving this.
