The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) in Clackmannanshire, Stirling and Falkirk provides opportunities to older people or those in or approaching retirement to volunteer in a primary or secondary school to support pupils with reading or writing, numbers, arts and crafts, music or other activities depending on the schools requirements.
We are also looking for Volunteer Organisers to help grow the network of schools our volunteers work in, as well as being involved in the recruitment and training of new volunteers.
School Volunteers are not teachers, however, the individual attention they can give to a child helps develop essential skills, as well as fostering children’s overall wellbeing and confidence.
Volunteers usually go into school for one session a week. They give one-to-one help to children selected by the teachers to benefit from it. Volunteers liaise closely with teachers to complement the work in the classroom.
The North Lanarkshire Befriending Project are looking for volunteers to help support vulnerable young people aged 8-18 in the local area through one to one outings. With social isolation, inequality and child poverty on the rise, the need for befrienders to help offer support to a child is higher than ever.
Volunteers give a young person a positive role model in their life by passing on their skills and experience, enabling them to try new things and simply providing them with a few hours of fun. Your young person may have experienced social isolation, bullying, domestic abuse or neglect, parental drug and alcohol abuse, may have learning difficulties, may be a young offender, or any combination of these. By giving up just a couple of hours every fortnight, you could make a real difference where it is needed most. Volunteers are recruited, trained and matched 1-1 with a young person, meeting them on a regular basis and participating in fun activities within the local community. Victims of circumstance, vulnerable young people often benefit from an adult befriender who they can talk to and trust. Our project has helped many young people in the past with their social skills, self-esteem, school attendance/performance, resilience, personal safety/health and relationships. As a volunteer, you would have the satisfaction of helping a young person in need, increasing your own confidence, enhancing your skills and experience – all the while having fun as you do so!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01698-574-576 to apply.

Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, life limiting genetically inherited condition with 1 in 25 people carrying the faulty gene that causes the condition. There is currently no cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The Butterfly Trust is the leading provider of social support to the Cystic Fibrosis community of Scotland. We were founded in 2002 to provide face to face services for people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families. Our aim is that people living with Cystic Fibrosis will have access to the support they need to ensure they can benefit from optimum homecare and enjoy the best quality of life in the community.
Our drivers provide transport for people affected by Cystic Fibrosis to hospital appointments. Our clients do not need any physical help getting in and out of the vehicle and our drivers use their own car. Children and adults with Cystic Fibrosis have to attend regular clinic appointments in hospitals to have their health monitored, usually every three months. Traveling in public transport poses risks of infection and waiting for transport in our typical inclement weather is undesirable because of their chronic lung condition. Our drivers provide transport from home ensuring a safe and comfortable journey. This service makes a real difference by reducing some of the pressure on families at this time.
Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else. It can also be an incredible opportunity to enhance your own life and build new skills to help your personal and career development. Our drivers provide transport for people affected by Cystic Fibrosis to hospital appointments. Mileage expenses are paid.
