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.

The Buckie and District Fishing Heritage Centre is run by volunteers and exists to preserve the rich fishing heritage of this area. The Centre contains a large collection of artefacts, an extensive photographic collection and comprehensive data bases of boats and artefacts all of which are available to visitors. A small reference library of local history and fishing boats is also maintained.
The Centre is embarking upon a new project focused on its Jack Johnstone Collection and needs a volunteer to help with the digital scanning of the catalogue and assisting with research.
This volunteer role would suit someone who has an excellent attention to detail, an interest in archive work, good digital/computer and written skills.
Volunteers continue to help preserve this unique cultural heritage as well as making it accessible. If you would like to join the volunteer team, please get in touch.
