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.
We are looking for friendly, positive and upbeat volunteers to join our team!
Our new Befriending service offers vital emotional support to individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis who live in Grampian region, helping them to gain confidence, increase self-esteem and get out and about in their community.
As a Befriender your skills, personality and location will be matched appropriately to an individual that has requested support on a one-to-one basis. Every individual has different needs therefore what they require will be determined on their circumstances. So your responsibilities could be:
*Offering emotional support through times of change.
*Helping individuals decide what to do next
*Providing encouragement, guidance and support in finding a new job
*Helping individuals achieve specific goals
*Developing individuals skills needed to achieve greater independence
*Signposting individuals to access information and advice relating to their action plan
*You will not be expected to provide any personal care.
Befriending is flexible to suit the needs of the Volunteer Befriender and the Befriendee and can be carried out from Monday to Friday during daytimes and evenings. A meeting might include just having a coffee and a chat, going shopping or going to watch a film etc
You will be given induction training and ongoing training and support from the Befriending Co-ordinator.

Adhere to Fertility Network Scotland policies and procedures. As a Support Group volunteer with Fertility Network Scotland, volunteers will benefit from helping others in the area with fertility issues. Volunteers may develop friendships, meet and work with new people to provide a network of much needed and valued support in their area.
Fertility Network Scotland provides advice, information and support for anyone affected by fertility issues. We also work to raise awareness of the impact of fertility problems and to campaign for fair provision of fertility treatment throughout Scotland.
Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, life-limiting, genetically inherited condition with no cure. We are the leading provider of social support to the Cystic Fibrosis community of Scotland, providing face-to-face services for individuals and families, and access to the support needed to ensure they benefit from optimum homecare and enjoy the best quality of life.
Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else, and an opportunity to enhance your own life and build new skills. Young people living with Cystic Fibrosis can face a variety of challenges that disadvantage them socially, financially and at school: they are often isolated and struggling to cope. A befriender will meet with a young person regularly to build a trusting one to one relationship. This will allow the young person the opportunity to explore their feelings, discuss their fears, grow their self-esteem, perhaps increase their confidence and coping skills for independent living.
A great opportunity to make a real difference for people. For more details please contact Dr Miles Tew at E Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 07712 606891.
The Youth Radio Network’s vision is to empower, teach and entertain young people, aged 13 to 25
years, through the power of music and digital technology, opening doors to the broadcast industries,
and to become more employable helping them to get the best start in life.
The Youth Radio Network is a digital place where young people can easily access and develop their skills
and interests. It acts as a sounding board for youth news and issues and promotes all youth
organizations. The Youth Radio Network's focus is on young people, and topical issues such as Bullying,
Racism, LGBT and much more.
Our music is generally chart music, and we play any young artists/bands from across the world. The aim
is to have a fresh and upbeat sound and something that young people feel; they can get involved in and
we encourage our young people to influence the music we play. There are also opportunities for our
listeners to interact with radio programmes. We will highlight any young musicians, artists or bands,
after all, it’s the internet and you never know who may be discovered next!
The Youth Radio Network is completely digital so anyone can present for us from any location! We also
want to help young people ages 16 to 25 years old get into employment and we hope that we can help
open many doors for young people looking for a career in the broadcasting industries.
This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we build our digital radio station which is directed and run by
young people. We have an ambitious programme that aims to make a difference to communities across
the UK by helping young people to develop their skills, interests and employability
We are looking to appoint a volunteer Contnet Producers to help build our organisation to the next level including the development and delivery of contnet for our website, social media channels and newsletters both internal and external for The Youth Radio Network.
