During the COVID19 pandemic, the role of Volunteers within our community has never been more important. These opportunities include helping with shopping, driving, check-in calls and collecting prescriptions for those in isolation/shielding. There are many activities you can get involved in to help make a difference in your local community. Perhaps you could help to coordinate volunteers as they assist with shopping and prescriptions, light gardening, friendly phone calls and other community needs that are identified. Please contact us if you feel you have the skills to coordinate local volunteer activity in Bishopbriggs, Auchinairn and Torrance.
Do you live in the G64 area of East Dunbartonshire? Then this role could be for you.
The role of the coordinator would entail receiving email referrals for assistance i.e. shopping, prescription collection and passing this out to the volunteer teams via WhatsApp. Keeping records of the volunteer activity and any finances. There are a couple of supermarket gift cards in the local supermarket which the volunteers use to purchase shopping for the clients and at present the volunteers take a photograph of the receipt and forward to us here at EDVA. The client then repays EDVA.
