Current opportunities

We are looking to recruit volunteers who have their own car and are able to offer a few hours supporting our carer activities. In the past this has included driving young and adult carers to appointments and also the delivery of treat packs to adult carers and activity packs to young carers. We pay volunteer expenses and the opportunity can be extremely rewarding. Potential volunteers will be required to undertake a volunteer interview on zoom. If you are interested in this role then please contact our Volunteer Development Worker Jim Dallas on 07387 017442 or email jim@anguscarers.org.uk.

We are looking to recruit volunteers to support our young carers group activities. These take place in the evenings after school or in the holidays. The groups provide respite for our young carers and are real good fun and we are looking for volunteers that are quite active and enjoy being outdoors. During the current situation we have also been running virtual groups so we will require a reasonable knowledge of IT. Full training is provided and this opportunity can provide valuable experience in working with young people. Volunteers will need to be reliable and responsible, have good communication skills, understand the importance of play, enthusiasm, and be a good listener and an awareness of the needs of young carers. Potential volunteers will be required to undertake a volunteer interview on zoom. If you are interested in this role then please contact our Volunteer Development Worker Jim Dallas on 07387 017442 or email jim@anguscarers.org.uk

We are looking for volunteers to support our families program that provides a variety of activities to the whole family where there is a child with a disability. The program works with the whole family including siblings, parents and guardians and the aim of the program is also to bring parents together. Volunteers will be involved in supporting these activities and we are looking for volunteers that are quite active and have some understanding of the needs of children with a disability. Volunteers will support children to engage with activities and will require patience and motivation with an ability to engage with a range of age groups and abilities. Full training is provided and this opportunity can provide valuable experience in working with children with disabilities and their families. Potential volunteers will be required to undertake a volunteer interview on zoom. If you are interested in this role then please contact our Volunteer Development Worker Jim Dallas on 07387 017442 or email jim@anguscarers.org.uk

Our popular support groups take place throughout Angus and we are looking for volunteers to support the groups. These have been taking place via zoom but with restrictions lifting the groups are beginning to return to face to face meetings. The groups are led by a Carer Support Worker and the role of the volunteer will be to come along and help out. The groups are informative and give carers a break from their caring role. This is a new opportunity and will provide the volunteer with a better understanding of the challenges that carers face. Training and support will be given and the time commitment is a few hours each month. Potential volunteers will be required to undertake a volunteer interview on zoom. If you are interested in this role then please contact our Volunteer Development Worker Jim Dallas on 07387 017442 or email jim@anguscarers.org.uk
