Charity registered in Scotland SC039171
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.
