Volunteers would be taken through how to use the Atom database system and talked with about what goes in the index. They would then be able to go and read the papers on the microfilm machine (which they'll also be taught to use) and record the contents so that others can find information more easily. Someone will always be on hand to help.
Volunteering Changes Lives!

Hi, this is a great opportunity to use your IT and marketing skills. We currently use wordpress, facebook and mailchimp to advertise our stalls and work. We have a marketing strategy in place and we really need help delivering it. As an organisation, we don’t have the skills to take our IT and marketing strategy any further, so we would be looking for you to have a really hands on approach to taking it forward with guidance from current members in terms of material to use.
We are thinking you are currently a student on a digital marketing course looking for hands on experience or maybe you work, or have worked, in that field and have time to spare. The commitment would be a couple of hours a week throughout the year.
You will learn lots about allotments, growing food locally and cooking with seasonal, locally grown produce. We are a friendly bunch of people who are enthusiastic about encouraging people to eat more fruit and veg, to grow their own, to reduce food miles and to reduce food waste from allotment sites.
For further details please contact Cath Pilley at email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Base is a Scottish Registered Charity which was set up fourteen years ago by a group of visually impaired people to support others with sight problems in East Fife by providing a programme of monthly activities. They require a volunteer to manage their website basefife.org.uk.
The tasks needed would include uploading photos, adding script e.g. latest news, update programme of events, add logos and occasional modification. The website is hosted by Digital Fife and tuition has been offered by them on a one-to-one basis should training be required.
This is a great opportunity to support visually impaired people living in East Fife, taking into account how sight-impaired people may need to access websites using screen readers, colour contrast settings, and larger font sizes.
AbilityNet is a UK wide registered charity that helps disabled and older people to use computers and the internet at home, at work and in education. We provide a number of free IT services for disabled and older people at home to help them get the most from their computers, laptops, tablets, ipads and smart phones. One such service is our ITCanHelp service. ITCanHelp is a network of volunteers with IT knowledge and experience who are able to visit people in their own homes to help with their computer needs. Volunteers may be asked to help set up a new computer system for someone, install software or hardware, troubleshoot problems or even help to change to a printer cartridge or give some basic training on how to use systems.
The Digital Inclusion Volunteer will help aid people to develop ICT skills by attending classes in their local area. Helping clients complete CVs and search for jobs and help people become interested in developing ICT skills. Once individuals develop their skills they can then use the internet for other purposes such as benefits or energy advice.
The role of the volunteer is to assist and maximise the benefits for learners. This is achieved by being available to provide extra support to attendees.
Volunteers will be asked to support the learners during the sessions to achieve their aims.

We are a team of volunteers based in and around Aberdeen responsible for Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland’s magazine of new writing and the visual arts.
The Coordinator/Project Manager role involves project management of both team and the tasks needed to produce our regular magazine.
You would be joining us along with our new editor in time to help manage an entire production cycle from the commitment to go ahead through to publication and launch of a new edition.
You would assign and coordinate tasks with team members, compile a schedule of tasks critical to the agreed timetable, and ensure those tasks are completed timeously.
We are a registered charity (Registered No. SC044919) and you would become a member of our managing committee.
While an interest in the arts would be a bonus, experience in coordination and project management are more important to fulfil this role successfully.
We are a friendly group and the work of the editor and coordinator/project manager is supported by a wider team at and between regular committee meetings.
For more details please contact Roger White, PR Manager at email: email@example.com or tel: 07925 822489.
