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.

Current opportunity

Volunteers are essential to Legion Scotland’s ability to support veterans in the community. We are currently recruiting volunteers to enable us to deliver the new ‘Veterans Community Support Service’. Trained and supported volunteers will be ‘matched’ with Armed Forces veterans and then provide a befriending relationship in the community – this could take the form of a regular social visit to relieve isolation and loneliness, or else to provide assistance with more specific issues at other times – training and support are provided and volunteers will be PVG checked prior to contact with clients. This is not a personal care or advisory service.
