Girvan Town Ambassador Volunteer Opportunity
Last year we ran a very successful pilot scheme which saw 6 local volunteers sign up as Girvan Town Ambassadors
From welcoming hundreds of visitors from all over the world to attending events and working on a variety of initiatives to improve the town, it is fair to say it was a resounding success
Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from visitors, locals, businesses and the Ambassadors themselves, we are not only going to bring the scheme back next year, we also plan to expand it
We would love to add more volunteer Ambassadors to the team so we can welcome even more visitors in 2024.
If you have a passion for Girvan, love chatting to people, and enjoy getting out and about, this could be the ideal opportunity for you.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities, hours are flexible

'Beyond Diagnosis' is driven by people with lived experience of bipolar. ‘Bipolar Scotland’ wants to ‘join up’ with people who would like to be part of our innovative, new project, as one of our Peer Support Volunteers. Our exciting and innovative new service means that people who have recently gone through a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, can now speak to a peer volunteer who has gone through a similar experience to them.
The volunteer will work remotely working alongside peer workers and other colleagues. Key duties are:
- provide complimentary practical and emotional support
- utilise their lived experience of living well with bipolar disorder, to inspire and empower those who use the service
- draw on their knowledge and skills to provide practical support in areas such as personal finance, budgeting, social inclusion, employability and education
- support individuals to achieve their goals, to create meaningful and sustainable connections with other sources of support within their communities
- instil a sense of hope for the future and what they can achieve.
So, if you are now living well with your bipolar disorder, and would like to spend a little time helping someone who has recently had a diagnosis, Bipolar Scotland would like to meet you.
