Would you like to support someone through their cancer journey?
Tayside Cancer Support offers a free, confidential, one-to-one befriending service for those affected by cancer in the Tayside area and help establish support groups which offer a valuable network for people facing a diagnosis of cancer either themselves or in a loved one. In addition, we provide specialist Mindfulness courses for anyone affected by cancer.
Our volunteers are the key to the Charity’s success. Everyone has skills that can be put to good use! If you think you’d like to get involved whether with our fundraising activities and events; getting involved with hospital visits or within our drop in support groups, we would love to have a chat with you.
Community Event Volunteers help us plan and facilitate our regular social events for people we support and their families in Ayrshire.
Befrienders help a person we support build their confidence and participate in social activities within their community. This may include going for walks, participating in clubs or classes together, or attending Equal Future’s monthly social events.
Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets were created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building.
Today, 14,000 young people based in 400 units in towns, cities and ports across the UK are challenging themselves and developing new skills, like sailing, boating and rock climbing - supported by 9,000 volunteers.
At Ayr, we love helping young people launch well in today’s world. Watching cadets grow into better versions of themselves is what makes volunteering for this charity so special. Volunteering with Sea Cadets has so many benefits. Including giving back to the community, helping young people grow into adults and gaining qualifications to teach different courses we have to offer. We’re always looking for people to join us! Whether it’s becoming a trained instructor or just lending a helping hand, your help is always welcome! You don’t need to have a background in the navy or in water sports, you just need to have a positive attitude!

Ayr Sea Cadets is actively recruiting new Sea Cadets (Aged 10-18) as well as new adult volunteers (18+). We have a hugely exciting 2023 planned, why not become part of it? So what are you waiting for?
