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.

This is seen as crucial to our future development and upscaling of the charity into a mulitsite organisation which will help repopulate the high street, provide local facilities, train and equip people for employment and self employment and provide opportunities for employment and self employment in social media and digital areas.

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.

Lucky Ewe is seeking to bring extra energy and perspective to its trustee group as they grow this new educational charity in NE Fife. Read about what their work with people with additional support needs here https://luckyewe.org.uk/ They would love to recruit 1 or 2 trustees, who work well with others, and have the experience and foresight to help steer lucky Ewe forward. They are interested in individuals with a financial or farming background, but all volunteers will be considered. Lucky Ewe trustees work always in the best interests of the charity, helping to: keep the public informed of their work; keep clear financial records; fundraise. Trustees who want to volunteer in practical tasks on the farm are also most welcome. Though not in itself a management position, it is important that trustees work well with the appointed part time staff at Lucky Ewe. At the moment Trustees are meeting at least once a month via Zoom. This requires trustees to prepare for the meeting, participate creatively in the meeting, give their best considered advice, and complete their accepted ensuing actions in a timely way. Altogether a trustee should expect to give 5 hours per month to the charity, though they may choose to give more time.
