Volunteer Walk Leader

  • VO83976


Description

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) encourages and assists older people to use their skills and experiences to volunteer and keep active in retirement. Across the region we have hundreds of older people volunteering in their communities including in local NHS hospitals, primary schools, our Healthy Walking Group and charitable knitting groups. Volunteering can have a huge impact on the people we support, the local community and volunteers themselves. People who volunteer are less likely to become socially isolated and experience fewer health problems, while socialising more and having fun in their spare time.

RSVP Forth Valley are currently recruiting for new Volunteer Walk Leaders. We hope to have new Walk Leaders in place for when the Walking Group resumes after the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, or sometime in the Autumn. The Volunteer role includes leading walks around the beautiful Forth Valley. You will receive full training to carry out this role.

Organisation aims and objectives

Volunteering Matters is the UK’s leading volunteering charity. Our vision is a society where everyone can participate to build strong and inclusive communities. Our mission is to enable people to take an active role in their communities through volunteering and social action. We have been working across Scotland since 1962. In the Forth Valley our current activities include the Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP), which engages older people in volunteering projects to benefit their community and peers. We currently have hospital and school volunteers, walking groups and knitting groups. We also run the Help at Hand service in the Forth Valley. We also have our Children's Volunteer Befriending project locally, working with disadvantaged young people between 8 and 18.
