Current opportunities

Could you help support someone to start their own volunteering journey, talk to them and listen to what they are interested in and the skills they would like to learn. Our volunteer brokers support local people to consider different volunteering roles and find the best opportunity for them. Admin tasks include updating our database and follow up calls to make sure things are progressing well. Brokers can also take part in delivering our monthly Introduction to Volunteering sessions and regular pop up stalls/activities that take place in the community. If this sounds like you, all we ask is 3 hours of your time each week. We will be there to provide any help, training and support you need. You will understand that for everyone’s safety you will be asked to go through a PVG (police) check.

We are looking for welcoming and enthusiastic volunteers to lead and support short health and social walks in West Dunbartonshire - these walks are based in Alexandria, Dumbarton, Old Kilpatrick and in Clydebank. Becoming a volunteer walk leader requires you to commit around an hour or two of your time weekly and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paperwork for the walk. Health walks encourage people who have not exercised for a while, find walking boring, or lack confidence to join a walking group because they think they will not be able to keep up. The walks are free, short, low intensity, safe and social around the local environment. Over the next year we plan to build upon our network of gentle exercise activities across West Dunbartonshire as part of the Walking Friendly West Dunbartonshire partnership. To help us achieve this we are looking for friendly and supportive volunteers who enjoy walking, meeting new folk while sharing the wide-range health and well-being benefits of gentle physical activity. Volunteers all receive Paths for All Walk Leader training to give them the skills and confidence to lead walks in your community. Further training can lead to you to becoming a Dementia Friendly Walk Leader. You will be encouraged to join a Health Walk and chat to a Health Walk leader before your training so that you have an idea of how it works on the ground. Volunteer walk leaders receive on-going support from the Health Walk coordinator.
