  • Home-based volunteering


Description

In the light of the Corona virus pandemic, that affects each and every one of us in Scotland, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland Western Isles are looking to urgently recruit volunteers to support those living with either Cardiac, Stroke or Respiratory Conditions in our community. Would you have an hour or two to spare to contact people within our community, who are isolated, socially disconnected and living with our conditions? Please get in touch. Normal applications (by email only) and PVG applications still apply. Training in our conditions, particularly with regard to Respiratory conditions will apply. This training will be accessible soon and can be done online. We are a great community and the most vulnerable in our islands need our help more than ever.

Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness in Scotland. The organisation funds medical research and provides a range of support services for people in the community. We rely on a team of over 1000 volunteers across Scotland to help deliver services to people who have suffered a stroke or Heart Failure and help to raise the funds needed.
