You'll use your professional skills to help groups overcome operational challenges, become better equipped for the future, and tackle inequality in sport.
Roles are flexible and work around your schedule. We share opportunities relevant to you. Most of our volunteering support is delivered digitally, so easier to start supporting our members.
We know representation matters, which is why we want our volunteers to reflect the diversity of the community groups we work with. We are actively encouraging applicants from ethnically diverse backgrounds and other minoritised groups to apply as we are currently under-represented in this space.

This is an opportunity for us to show the kind of love for humanity that abides in this beautiful city of Aberdeen to the newest members (immigrants) during their integration and inclusion process. Helping in the way of supporting families and individuals in need of these food items due to lack of funding, no job, or even homeless situation (with no recourse to public funding from the government), amidst other integration and inclusion struggles will go a very long way.
Most of these beneficiary members include men, women, children, and young ones, who are not necessarily asylum seekers or refugees but immigrants who have come to our beautiful host city and made it home. The cultural, social, and moral differences that exist between their home country and Aberdeen (host community), have made settling (integration and inclusion) more difficult for these members. No job equates to no money, which also equates to no food. Mamacita Foundation, as part of our social responsibility is partnering with other organisations and working endlessly to ensure a swift integration and inclusion process for these members of our community.
In our bid to manage food waste reduction as well as get it to persons in need of these food items, we are calling on you, yes you, to join us as we work with @CFINE, @ Fairshare, and @ Coop group in reaching out to persons.
Your service to humanity is always appreciated and we look forward to working with you in supporting others in need. Nobody should feel alone.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference. All volunteer support is greatly appreciated. For more details please contact Vivian Draghici at email: email@example.com or telephone: 07449826988.

Volunteers we need you, with you inspiration and motivation to serve as a board member on the Management Board of HALLA (Harlaw Area Lifelong Learning Association).
We are a Board of people who run daytime and evening classes at Kaimhill Learning Centre.
We have a FB page ( @HALLACommunity) where you can see some of our activities and tutored classes.
We meet once a month to discuss new opportunities and management issues, to find new ways of how-to bring people of all ages in the local community into the centre.
We have several weekly, social, informal learning groups where Board members can get to know each other and form a friendly working relationship.
A volunteer should be passionate, enthusiastic and have a keen interest in community matters.
A volunteer does not necessarily require specific skills since we all support each other to develop new skills but if you have specific ones, it would be good to introduce them to the rest of the Board so we can use them to benefit the local community.
The Board would appreciate people with knowledge of IT and office procedures but enthusiasm and interest in the community are equally important.
This is an amazing opportunity to discover your “hidden talents” !!!
You are very welcome to attend a committee meeting and see if this is for you.
WE ARE WAITING TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR FRIENDY AND DIVERSE HALLA BOARD !!!!!
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference for the community. All assistance is greatly appreciated.

Could you lead the local SSAFA services in your area? You don’t need a military background for this role, but you should be empathic to the needs of the armed forces community, have some experience of managing people and possess good I.T. skills. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
What is a Branch Chair?
There are SSAFA branches throughout the UK and overseas. Each branch has a Chair to oversee all aspects of the branch. Ultimately accountable to the Chair of the Board of Trustees, through the National Chairman your role is to ensure that the branch is running in line with SSAFA’s Royal Charter Rules, Regulations and policies. Also, to ensure that clients and volunteers are safe, all services provided are appropriate and effective and that the branch is financially sound. You will be the public face of SSAFA in your branch area.
Why do we need you?
We’ve been supporting the Armed Forces community for more than 130 years. Our clients come from all
backgrounds and age groups and more people than ever are contacting SSAFA for financial, practical and emotional
support. To do this we need local branches and volunteers who can coordinate people, ensure the local population
know about SSAFA and keep things running smoothly behind the scenes.
When would you be needed and where would you be based?
This role is about leadership, coordination and administration. As part of your local branch, you might have access
to an office, but many volunteers are based at home.
The role requires an ongoing time commitment, usually about 2-3 days per month. In addition, you would need to
organise and attend regular meetings throughout the year.
What would you be doing?
• Providing leadership to the Branch and ensuring that all activities comply with SSAFA regulations both
directly, and through the Branch Secretary, other Branch Officers and Divisional Officers.
• Providing support and guidance to volunteers in office holder roles, and support with recruitment of
volunteers into these positions to ensure the sustainability of the branch
• Ensuring the financial integrity of the Branch, including the appointment of Treasurers and a local
fundraising programme to meet branch running costs
• Ensuring that all data is processed and held in accordance with SSAFA’s data management policies
• Monitoring volunteer numbers against the demand for support and working with other volunteers, regional
and central office staff to attract and recruit new volunteers as required
• Ensuring that all volunteers are recruited, inducted, supported and managed in line with SSAFA policies, such
as the Volunteering Policy, Volunteer Code of Conduct, Data Protection Policy, and Safeguarding Policy.
• Building relationships with regional and central office staff, local voluntary organisations and, if applicable,
SSAFA Service committees, local military establishments, prisons etc.
• Overseeing an appropriate programme of awareness raising so that potential clients, volunteers and
supporters know how to contact the branch
• Providing timely reports and information to SSAFA’s Central Office
• Overseeing a programme of meetings including an AGM, branch meetings, committee meetings, training etc.
• Supporting any salaried branch staff and ensuring that their line management arrangements are working
• Resolve any complaints that are suitable for local resolution in accordance with SSAFA’s Complaints Policy
and procedures, referring upwards any that are not suitable for local resolution
