At Sue Ryder Dee View Court we strive to help people to live lives as fully as possible. We offer a huge range of support including long-term residential care, supported living and specialist rehabilitative services designed to help people improve or regain their abilities. We focus on a person's wellness not illness and abilities rather than disabilities. A Community based service of excellence - care that liberates lives.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for a recently established self management programme for people with neurological conditions in their own homes. Through volunteering with the programme for a few hours a week/fortnight you can make a difference to peoples lives-this can be through visiting someone and having a chat and a tea/coffee or assisting people in accessing community activities, building peoples confidence again.
Good support, relevant training and reimbursement of any out of pocket expenses e.g.: any bus fares/car mileage etc. is provided to all volunteers.
Through volunteering with this exciting and important programme you will make a difference to people’s lives.
For more details about this and volunteering with Sue Ryder please contact Julie Schoullar on email: firstname.lastname@example.org / tel.: 01224 896339/ 01224 245920.
We are recruiting volunteers to assist in our important and exciting Pamiloo development.
Thousands of people with complex needs across Scotland are unable to attend events or visit outdoor venues due to the lack of appropriate toilet facilities and to this end PAMIS have purchased the first Scottish fully accessible mobile changing places toilet.
PAMIS will use this resource for events that they organise for families and it will also be available for others to hire. To date it has been at the Edinburgh Fringe, visited various beaches and events in Scotland.
We require volunteers to open and close the van, be an attendant and supervise the use of the mobile changing places toilet. This position is open to a wide group of volunteers. Training will be given.
We are also recruiting volunteer drivers (for volunteer drivers you have to be 25 years old and over for insurance purposes). You could volunteer to be a driver and drive it to different venues. All bookings will be arranged through PAMIS.
Excellent support and full training is provided to all volunteers and we reimburse agreed out of pocket expenses and travel. This is a hugely valuable and rewarding experience, the opportunity to learn new skills and to travel.
For more information please contact Lesley Gray on email email@example.com or tel.: 01382 385154. You can visit our website: www.pamis.org.uk
Note: a child or adult with profound and multiple learning disabilities will always be accompanied by at least one carer at all times. You will not be expected to assist in any personal care activities.

The aim of Active Schools is for all children and young people to get and stay active. It is one of a number of national initiatives that has been established with the purpose of addressing Scotland’s inactive, unfit and increasingly overweight population.
Perth and Kinross has a network of Active Schools Coordinators who work together with school staff, parents and communities to offer children and young people the opportunities and motivation to adopt active, healthy lifestyles, now and into adulthood.
Active Schools Coordinators are looking to recruit, support, train and sustain a network of volunteers including parents, senior pupils, coaches, leaders and teachers who in turn deliver physical activity and sport opportunities during out of school hours. Active Schools is able to offer access to free training opportunities to volunteers who meet the criteria.
Active Schools is accepting applications from people interested in volunteering as a sports / activity coach or leader who would like to work with children and young people with a disability.
Perth Shopmobility are looking for applications from people to join a caring team of staff and volunteers to enable people with mobility problems to become more self-reliant in their daily life.
A well-organised booking service and record-keeping must be maintained in order to minimise waiting time for people requiring assistance. Appropriate records and statistics are also kept for monitoring/evaluation. The volunteer will be required to introduce customers to equipment and after appropriate training, train customers to use the equipment if required.
Maintenance of the equipment is essential to provide Shopmobility customers safe, clean and reliable equipment which can be used in the knowledge that we provide a service on which they can rely. Maintenance involves: battery charging, tyre pressures, checking lights etc.
N.B. Due to the location, all volunteers and staff must be very alert and aware of the dangers involved with moving vehicles at all times.
We have a vacancy for someone with a sunny disposition to meet and greet people as they arrive, note their details, direct them to their allotted space and deliver any mobility equipment they require to their car, and to log details on a computer. We would also like someone who enjoys DIY, has a practical background and can give a few hours per week to help us maintain our mobility equipment. We are looking for someone to ensure that the mobility equipment is clean and in good order for our customers' safety and comfort. This is an extremely important role, as you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
This is your chance to provide practical help to people with limited mobility and be part of a vibrant service making a real difference to West Dunbartonshire. To the right volunteers we would offer training and support in the service that we provide and the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses.

At present we have a website, just recently constructed but needs to be optimised. We have an independent Twitter account and a Facebook page but the Facebook account is connected to the manager's personal Facebook page. We, therefore, need to develop an independent Facebook page for the charity. We believe it would also be advantageous to the charity to have an Instagram page.
We need a volunteer, or volunteers, to create a new Facebook page and an Instagram page. To moderate, promote and develop the charity on social media creating a profile that will hopefully assist us in promoting our work and increase our online fundraising.
We also need that person, or persons, to optimise our website profile on the Internet to drive more views to our website. This will hopefully lead to more people becoming members of the charity and making donations to the charity via our website and social media pages.
Volunteers are matched up on a one-to-one basis with a vulnerable adult. The matches meet regularly either weekly or fortnightly for a few hours at a time. The aim is to engage in purposeful activities within the community which will help to reduce social isolation and feelings of loneliness. It is also about continuing to support the adult to engage in their own community and have positive social connections.
