User-Improved reading, writing and numeracy to improve social communication and employability skills.

Edinburgh Napier University are looking for members of the public to act as, patients. A Simulated Patient is someone who has been carefully trained to act as a patient, and as such the students will practice non-invasive skills such as communication, moving and handling. This will increase their confidence and competence, and will help prepare them for clinical practice. We have many manikins and models, but there is no better way to prepare students than to let them practice their skills.
Home-based volunteering, Suitable for groups, One-off volunteering, Board/trustee role
Lead Scotland volunteers support disabled people and carers to learn. Most learners receive 1-1 support to learn and develop all kinds of skills. Learners may want to brush up on their reading, writing and number skills e.g. learning how to write a shopping list or work on the household budget. Other learners may want to learn to use a computer e.g. to send emails, do online shopping or access Facebook.
We take a person-centred approach, which means we listen to what the learner wants to learn, and we can offer tailored learning packages to support them to achieve their goals. The learning can be formal or informal - learners can be supported to achieve a qualification or just simply learn skills to make a difference to everyday life.

We email our volunteers with information about our current studies and they decide if they wish to take part.
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.
