We’re a new charity set up to help with the rescue and rehoming of cats. Our main aim is to build our own centre to do this and our whole team are committed to the care and welfare of cats. We work with other small charities to achieve this and our shop is raising funds to allow us to do this whilst helping rehome cats.
Our volunteers work in teams of two at all times in the shop. Serving the public, maintaining stock on shop floor, sorting donations handed into us at shop, keeping shop clean and neat at all times,
We do an induction at the shop with every volunteer, find suitable buddy for them, show how to sort donations ie separate, store and trash. They, if needed, will also be taught to operate the till.
Our morningshift is 10-1 and afternoon is 1-4.
We also need volunteer with a driving licence as we sometimes area asked to collect/deliver things from and to customer. Costs would be reimbursed
Able to work with other people, Pleasant, friendly and confident attitude would be advantageous for serving the public and being first point of contact with our charity.
Due to handling money and serving public we would ask for the volunteers to be over 18. Due to size of premises at the moment we can’t take someone in a wheelchair. Hopefully in the future
Our shops help raise lots of money for children living in the UK and in 120 countries worldwide. It’s always lovely chatting to our customers about the fabulous items we sell and telling them about the fantastic work that Save the Children does. You’ll get the chance to meet new people and make friends plus you’ll be part of an amazing team of volunteers.
There’s so much for you to get stuck in to when you’re volunteering in our shops. We get lots of donations and it's always exciting when one of our volunteers spots a real gem. You'll be taking in, sorting, steaming and pricing donations, rolling up your sleeves in the backroom as well as being on the shop floor.
Serving customers with a smile is so important. You’ll be using the till (don't worry, we'll show you how) and handling money. And when people come in to donate items you'll also be completing the Gift Aid forms that let their donations help us even more.
It’s really important that our window and shop displays look appealing so people keep visiting our shops. So you'll be wielding a duster and vacuum as well as your imagination to make the shop look its best.
It would be ideal if you could volunteer one shift a week, which is about four hours but we're also happy to have more flexible times. No special skills are needed as we’ll show you what to do and we provide all the training you’ll need. But if you have any experience or particular interest tell us, it may come in useful. It’s really easy to get your volunteering started. If you're over 18 years old, just click on ‘Apply’ and get filling in your details!
It starts with ‘Hello’. From new mums to empty nesters, it's often surprising who is affected by loneliness.
That's why we're teaming up with The Co-operative. Together we want to reach out and reconnect thousands of lonely people with their communities, and tackle a problem that is shortening lives and eroding wellbeing.
The aim of the Community Connector is to support people affected by social isolation and loneliness and to help them gain confidence and to reconnect to their community in partnership with existing and new partner organisations. We will place the person at the centre of what we do and help them by offering positive encouragement, practical help and emotional support, for up to three months, depending on their needs.
Full training and excellent support is provided to all volunteers.
This is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the local community. All help is greatly appreciated.

Our Language Cafes are friendly and informal weekly sessions where we invite everyone to chat in English and learn from each other about living in the UK. So far we have had over 25 different nationalities, aged be-tween 20 to 70+, with a variety of professions and educational levels. Every person attending our sessions is invited to enjoy an informal and welcoming environment that promotes tolerance and integration. Cafetistas come to learn about Aberdeen, meet people who share their circumstances and meet volunteers who would encourage them to improve their English and learn more about the UK.
Every week we speak about a different topic or run an activity to encourage cafetistas to improve their language and personal skills and integrate into their community, whether in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire.
*What are the benefits of being our volunteer at the Language Cafes:
*You will learn about different cultures and use your personal and life skills to interact and help people who are settling in an unfamiliar environment.
* You will exercise your existing capabilities and knowledge on varied topics whilst learning about new subjects and cultures.
*You will learn about creative ways in which you can engage, encourage and motivate people.
* You will have a positive and long lasting impact on cafetistas as well as in your community by supporting an environment of tolerance, respect and open interaction.
*You will learn and practise your leading and problem solving skills as well as your creativity and adaptability.
*We would like to invite volunteers who can:
*Attend at least two language cafes every month over an extended period of time. This helps to support consistency and creates a solid relationship with our cafetistas and with GREC.
* Research and share information with our cafetistas.
* Act as moderators and lead activities with other volunteers and cafetistas during our sessions.
* Create a welcoming environment by tolerating and respecting every-one attending our Language Cafes.
* Ensure that everyone is given an opportunity to communicate and share their opinions during the sessions.

We'd like you to offer your home/ shed/ garage as a drop off point for good that people donate to the refugee crises. This opportunity entails us listing and publicising your address as a drop off point for donations. We can arrange for drivers to collect and transport the items to the sorting centre at set intervals if you're unable to do this yourself.
We'd like you to transport donated goods from drop off points to the Chanonry Road sorting center, and to occasionally transport boxes destined for the camps, to the depot site in Inverness. As much or as little of your time as you could spare would be extremely appreciated.
We'd like you to come to our sorting center at 2 Chanonry Road North, Elgin, IV30 6NB, to help us sort donated goods and pack them in to boxed which will be sent to refugees in camps across Europe. Donating stock means saving items of clothing and footwear, blankets, hats, etc, and putting aside items that can be used to raise funds in a jumble sale. The packing of the boxes has to be done in a specific way, as each box has a specific purpose, e.g, the items will be for a small child, or a medium sized man.
We'd like you to organise and hold jumble sales across Moray to raise fund for Moray Supports Refugees. The stock you'll be selling is donated items which are unsuitable for life in the European Refugee Camps, but which are perfect for raising the much needed fund to support the sustainability of the organisation, and to support the refugees who have been settled in Moray.
