Volunteering Matters is a national volunteering charity. We recognise the potential our Young People across Clackmannanshire possess. They have aspirations and goals like us all – but may not currently have the skillset, tools or guidance needed to turn these into a reality. The effects of COVID-19 have seen a large number of Young People across Clackmannanshire experiencing social isolation, loneliness, poor mental and physical health and without a ‘Positive Destination’.
Equip Mentoring uses the power of volunteers to support young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET) or who need additional guidance and support to enter the employment market, further education or training. We recruit, train and support Mentors who are matched 1:1 with a young person, using their life experience to act as a positive and reliable role model.

Volunteering Matters is a volunteering and social change charity. They recognise the potential young people across Clackmannanshire possess. Young people have aspirations and goals like us all – but may not currently have the tools or guidance needed to turn these into a reality. The effects of COVID-19 have seen many young people across Clackmannanshire experiencing social isolation, loneliness, poor mental and physical health and without a ‘Positive Destination’. Equip Mentoring uses the power of volunteers to support young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET) or who need additional guidance and support to enter the employment market, further education or training.
The Volunteer Mentors will support the young people practically (such as CV writing and interview skills) as well as emotionally (building confidence, resilience, and independence) whilst reducing social isolation and loneliness. The young person and mentor will meet regularly and will set goals and ambitions to develop new skills, knowledge and experienced to pursue the young persons chosen pathway. Volunteering Matters asks volunteers to spend 1-2 hours a week with their match.
The time period that Mentors support young people will vary depending on the needs and goals of each match, up to 12 months. Volunteering Matters recognise that every young persons journey & needs are different and so the length of match will depend on their needs and ambitions. The organisation's Engagement Manager offers full support and encouragement to mentors and young people, keeping in touch on a regular basis.

Equal Access provides support and information for men and women from minority ethnic communities who are experiencing feelings of stress, isolation, depression, anxiety or unhappiness and are able to access information about the services available.
As we adopt the current social distancing measures put in place by the Government as a result of Covid-19 our Equal Access Team are working hard to ensure that support is still available to those who need it. Instead of offering support face to face, all matches will now be offered via telephone or video call and we are looking for volunteers to help us deliver this. If you speak another language, enjoy working with people and would be able to pick up the phone or make a video call we’d love to hear from you.
