Archie Foundation

Charity registered in Scotland SC039521

Our vision is that all children in our local areas will have equal access to world-class healthcare and bereavement support, delivered in a child-appropriate environment and manner.

Current opportunities

We are looking for individuals to create a support group of The Archie Foundation and promote the work and services we provide. These groups would ideally plan local fundraisers and spread awareness about the work of the Archie Foundation and how they support the people of Orkney.

The Archie Foundation exists to make the difference for children and their families accessing local NHS healthcare and in bereavement. By working with our NHS colleagues, child development and childcare professionals, Archie provides a lifeline of support for local children and their families. Whatever age you are, and whatever your background is, if you have an interest in supporting the work that we do we would love to hear from you! There are many activities that volunteers can help us with, here are just a few examples: • Place and gather back in our collection cans – lots of pennies soon mount up and make a huge difference. • Administrative support in our donor care office – writing thank you letters and cards to let our donors know how appreciated they are. • Volunteering at events, both on the day and to help us plan for their success. • Delivering leaflets and putting up posters on community noticeboards. • Staffing a stall at a local market or community centre to help spread the word about the work we do. • Speaking on behalf of the charity at community events. • Assisting with our supporters/groups e.g.: knitting and craft groups who • Organising your own fundraising events with friends and family. • Training to become a Volunteer Responder as part of Archie’s Child Bereavement Service team. All help from people volunteering makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated. For full details and links for volunteering with us please visit or email
