Volunteering

Volunteering


Come and join the team!


We are always looking for volunteers to work on our projects and help run the Trust.  It's a great way to meet new people and get involved in the community.


If you have some free time, and would like to join us working on any of the projects below we'll be happy to see you.


Some activities that you may want to volunteer for may require a Protecting

Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) check.


More information is available about the PVG scheme from the mygov.scot (Scottish Government) website.
