"Coming here was one of the best decisions of my life. I became more independent, and my self-confidence improved a lot."

Volunteer with us
Volunteering is at the heart of what we do. We pride ourselves on providing a supportive, nurturing environment where volunteers not only help us support those we work with, but can also grow and realise their own potential.
From learning new skills, making new friends, to giving back to our community – there’s lots of reasons to get involved. Our volunteer roles vary throughout the year - from admin roles to apple picking, companionship to cooking... there's something for everyone!
Find your perfect volunteering opportunity with us by applying online, calling 0131 475 2670 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most of our volunteer roles are for a few hours a week, fortnight or monthly. If you are looking for a live-in residential role for several months, please find further information below:
