    The No1 Be-Friending Agency

    This opportunity takes place from 19 Sep 2018.

    The idea is to visit an older person at their home to spend time with them as they are isolated or alone. As a volunteer you will offer support to your befriendee, encouraging him or her to be as independent as possible. As Volunteer Befriender you will not only transform the life of the person you will assist but also yours. At the same time, there are other benefits of becoming a volunteer with us. Volunteering provides experience and builds skills which are valuable to employers. All the experience you gain you can put it on your CV. Additionally, you will benefit from training and on-going skills development, as well as friendly and professional support by our Volunteer Coordinators.

Our retail assistants are trained to undertake a wide range of activities such as serving customers, taking receipt of stock donations from the public and merchandising stock to make our rails visually appealling and tidy. Volunteering with us will enable you to build upon your communication, team working and customer service skills.

  • The INCLUDED project, which runs out of the Yoker Community Campus in north-west Glasgow, is looking to recruit enthusiastic social support volunteers to help local disabled participants take part in our daily activities. The project aims to include participants in ordinary activities in ordinary places, and provide them with social support, as well as less structured social time, all of which they may not ordinarily find easy to access. We do this in a person centred way. In other words, we focus on the ways in which our service users want support on their own terms. We run workshops and activities from upcycling and crafts, woodworking, cooking classes, numeracy and literacy sessions, allotment gardening, fitness classes, dance classes and group outings. If helping others to get stuck into these exciting opportunities in a way that works for them sounds like something you'd be good at, this might be the opportunity for you. It would be great if you have had prior experience of working with disabled adults, but don't worry if you don't so long as you have an accepting, supportive and non-judgemental attitude and a willingness to help and learn, you'll fit right in. A good grasp of English and ability to overcome communication issues are also a must. Our group-work sessions run from 10/10.30am until 1/2.30pm depending on the day, and we are particularly keen to recruit new volunteers for our busiest days on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, although our sessions run every weekday. There's something different on every day, so activities volunteers would be supporting would change accordingly. Volunteers would work with our service users for a whole, or most of a session at least once a week, ideally on the same days each week, so that we can provide a sense of consistency and familiarity to our service users, for whom this is very important. We strongly believe everyone should have access to the opportunities, skills and abilities that they need to develop themselves and lead full lives as part of their community. If you would like to be a part of making this happen for local people with additional needs, we'd love to have you on board! We'll start you off with a taster session or two after a brief induction, and get you started on regular days if we’re a good fit for each other.
