Peep is looking for caring and enthusiastic volunteers who would like to help at our baby and toddler groups throughout the city. We offer free groups that promote attachment based activities (i.e. singing, book sharing, different types of play) to parents and carers in Aberdeen. Our groups are very popular with most having a waitlist, but as a small team we can only offer so many sessions. We’re initially looking for volunteers to help us at the groups but there is a potential for volunteers to receive training to eventually deliver their own Peep groups.
If singing and playing with small children isn’t for you, we’re also looking for volunteers to help us with our resource library. Our library has approximately 5000 items and it is a job in itself to keep it up to date. Our library needs someone who can help us clean, sort, repair, and develop new resources that can be used at groups. Although not essential, we appreciate volunteers who can and are willing to sew and be crafty!
For further details please contact Natasha Martens, Peep Coordinator at E Mail: email@example.com or tel.: 01224 248389.

Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.
Across Scotland, over 1 million people – that’s one in five of the population – are living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke. By 2021 we will double the number of people we support so that more people can live life to the full. We will do this by providing vital advice, information, and support through our No Life Half Lived Support services across Scotland.
CHSS provide a vital Stroke Nurse Service in the Grampian Area and we are seeking to complement our Stroke Nurse Services in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Woodend Hospital by the addition of a volunteer administrator. Volunteers are involved in extensive training and skill-building. Volunteers can expect to receive valuable, real skills and experience.

>Arranging appointments for nurse and sending out letters to patients.
>Inputting data from the stroke nurses notes into database.
>Ordering publications, profile packs and advice sheets.
>Updating the Stroke Information Pack.
>Preparation of initial paperwork for nurses’ first visits.
