VOLUNTEER VACANCY

Information Evening - Monday 3rd February

On Monday 3rd February we are holding an information evening from 7pm to 9pm (drop in anytime) for anyone interested in finding out more about volunteering with us. Come along and see what we get up to and ask any questions. You don’t need to commit to anything and we’re a friendly bunch!

Please get in touch using the form below to let us know you would like to come or drop us an email at hello@glasgowdisabledscouts.org and we’ll let you know all the details.

MONDAY NIGHT HELPERS (OVER 18s)

Background of the role

Each Monday night we support around 70 young people with disabilities to take part in an exciting, adventurous Scouting programme.

We provide one to one support to all of the young people who join us. Each young person is assigned a volunteer for the evening to guides them through the programme, helps them with any specific support requirements and most importantly makes sure they are having a great time.

This is one of our most rewarding roles – working directly with the young people you will come away with a real sense of achievement from what you have been able to support the young person to do.

We have vacancies for volunteers to join all our sections on Monday nights so please get in touch if this might be of interest to you and we can have a conversation!

Details of the role

Days and times

We meet every Monday night (except for school holiday Mondays). The meetings start at 7pm and finish at 9pm with a little time afterwards for a de-brief and discussion for all volunteers.

Where you would be volunteering

This role will take place in Newlands, right next to Landside railway station!

Skills and experience

You don’t need any specific skills or past experience for this role. You should have an interest in supporting young people with disabilities and be enthusiastic and willing to get involved in the programme.

We will provide full induction and ongoing training and support.

Restrictions on volunteering in this role

We have reached capacity in the number of 14 to 18 year old volunteers we have, so this role is restricted to those aged 18 and above.

You must be willing to join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme and undergo the essential training around safety and safeguarding.

The support we provide

If you apply for this role one of our volunteers will arrange to meet with you to chat through the role in full and answer any questions you have. You’ll then come along and join us for one week to see what it’s like, and if you decide to join us we’ll then complete the necessary paperwork.

Initially you’ll complete a series of flexible training modules covering background to Scouting, safety and safeguarding.

Ongoing training and support is provided throughout your time with us.
