Our aim is that people living with Cystic Fibrosis will have access to the support they need to ensure they can benefit from optimum homecare and enjoy the best quality of life in the community.


Current opportunities

Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, life-limiting, genetically inherited condition with no cure. We are the leading provider of social support to the Cystic Fibrosis community of Scotland, providing face-to-face services for individuals and families, and access to the support needed to ensure they benefit from optimum homecare and enjoy the best quality of life. Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else. This role offers an opportunity for working in a hospital environment for someone with a diploma in Swedish massage therapy. The massage therapy service is offered for young adults (16+) during hospital admissions. This professional service is highly regarded by both clients and the medical professionals who care for them. Many of these young people are far from home in these centres and the therapist provides much appreciated social contact in addition to the benefits of the massage. A great opportunity to make a real difference for people. For more details please contact Dr Miles Tew at E Mail: miles@butterflytrust.org.uk or tel: 07712 606891.

Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else, and an opportunity to enhance your own life and build new skills. Mentors offer support to young adults with Cystic Fibrosis in improving socialisation, broadening horizons and exploring concerns to improve self-esteem, enhance coping skills and the person's quality of life. A mentor will meet with a young adult regularly to build a trusting one-to-one relationship allowing the person to explore their feelings, discuss their aspirations and grow life skills, to support them in achieving goals or just giving them someone to talk to. A great opportunity to make a real difference for people. For more details please contact Dr Miles Tew at E Mail: miles@butterflytrust.org.uk or tel: 07712 606891.

Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else, and an opportunity to enhance your own life and build new skills. Young people living with Cystic Fibrosis can face a variety of challenges that disadvantage them socially, financially and at school: they are often isolated and struggling to cope. A befriender will meet with a young person regularly to build a trusting one to one relationship. This will allow the young person the opportunity to explore their feelings, discuss their fears, grow their self-esteem, perhaps increase their confidence and coping skills for independent living. A great opportunity to make a real difference for people. For more details please contact Dr Miles Tew at E Mail: miles@butterflytrust.org.uk or tel: 07712 606891.
