Volunteer Edinburgh - Health and Wellbeing

The Health and Wellbeing Team at Volunteer Edinburgh believes that volunteering can play an important role in an individual’s recovery and that our clients have an important contribution to make. We work with individuals who have barriers to accessing and sustaining volunteering eg those with a learning or physical disability; a mental health issue; reformed offenders; people recovering from alcohol or drug addictions. We aim to make volunteering more inclusive across Edinburgh by identifying appropriate opportunities and supporting them to overcome barriers. We work directly with individuals, their support workers and volunteer managers in volunteer involving organisations.

Current opportunity

MyVolunteering is a website run by the Health and Employability Team at Volunteer Edinburgh. It gives volunteers the opportunity to publicise their experiences of volunteering through prose, poetry, quotes, drawings and photographs. We have lots of content but need someone with a creative eye for detail to edit the material and display it clearly and beautifully within the structure of the website. Tasks include working with the HWB/Employability staff to agree on how best to showcase the stories and quotes on the website. To edit the material so the key messages are highlighted and easy for the public to access. To utilise the artistry and ethos behind the website to tempt more people to read and share their experiences. To work with staff at Volunteer Edinburgh on the development and improvement of the website.
