South Lanarkshire Council are trying to facilitate outdoor visiting to Care Homes in the Hamilton and Larkhall area and to assist with this we are looking to buy Gazebos to provide a bit of shelter from the elements for carers and service users alike as visits are restricted to outdoor areas at the moment. We need a couple of local volunteers who could help with putting up and taking down the gazebos (this might be a daily requirement, depending on the weather etc) Volunteers will erect the gazebo in the morning and take it down around tea time each night. This volunteering would go a long way to helping in facilitating the re-connection of family members.

There’s volunteering, and then there’s Full-Time Volunteering (FTV). It’s an incredible opportunity for people aged between 18 and 35 to undertake a life-changing challenge, living away from home for up to 12 months while supporting some of the most vulnerable or marginalised people and communities across the UK.
It’s your chance to unearth hidden talents, boost self-confidence, meet new people and change lives. So whether you’re looking to leave your mark on the world, develop your skills base or devote a gap year to a cause you really care about, FTV is for you.
No one volunteering placement is the same. You could be supporting older people, homeless people, families, children or young people. You might be working within an environmental setting, or a residential one, or you could be undertaking sporting activities – we take care to match you to the opportunity that’s right for you.
This could mean:
Befriending and supporting someone in their home, or groups of beneficiaries in a single project (like a homeless shelter), making a real difference to their wellbeing
Acting as a mentor or role model to young people or people with disabilities, perhaps helping them to plan for their futures at key transition points in their lives
Enabling access to social and leisure activities, at home, locally or at University, giving people connections to their communities they couldn’t otherwise enjoy.
Full-time volunteering is also an excellent route to recognised work experience in a variety of sectors, including social work, social care, nursing, medicine, teaching, youth work and psychology.
For any further information, or an informal chat, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0121 678 8821 .
