The Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland Growchapel project based in Drumchapel, is a Glasgow City Council initiative aimed at improving health and wellbeing through the benefits of creating and managing a wellbeing garden. Growchapel is a welcoming, inclusive site for the people of Drumchapel to enjoy, relax, and grow within. It is a place where everyone is included, where diversity and creativity are valued, encouraged, and always respected. It is a kind space, which supports wellbeing for us, our families, and the environment. Being a Wellbeing Garden Volunteer, you will support the delivery of the Growchapel project and work in partnership with the CHSS Health Defence team to manage the wellness garden. You will get to meet new people in your community and have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a valuable contribution to the awareness of CHSS.
Being a Community Facilitator is all about delivering a variety of lifesaving first aid skills in community engagement workshops and projects, within local communities, and primary and secondary schools. A lot of these projects involve talking about and demonstrating the basics of first aid to community groups that can include children, young people, and vulnerable adults.
An example of events you could be delivering a first aid talk and demo to, are primary and secondary schools, small university groups, local community groups, charities, summer fairs, shopping centres. Some of the skills you could be teaching include how to provide CPR and apply a defib, different bandages and how to use them, and basic information on various health conditions. Not only that but all the training needed, is provided by us at no cost to you!
A fantastic opportunity to help. All volunteers make a real difference and are greatly appreciated.
