Current opportunities

We are currently looking for volunteers aged 21-70 to drive our minibuses for around an hour on a Thursday morning and afternoon, as well as those who can commit to help out on an ad-hoc basis. Application to the PVG scheme will be essential and the cost will be covered by JCS.

As part of our strategy to connect people to their community and the Jewish culture, we aim to deliver the Jewish Telegraph weekly to isolated members of the community. We need volunteers who are able to collect copies from our office and deliver these locally around Giffnock and the surrounding area.

Call on Me aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness and enable people to contribute to, as well as benefit from, the opportunity to connect with others. We hope to have a positive impact on the people we support and that both volunteers and call recipients will benefit from increased wellbeing as a result! If you are interested in volunteering with the Call on Me service, you would be allocated individuals to make contact with on a regular basis, at a time that suits you. A JCS staff member would be available within working hours should you require any support.
