We are currently only able to recruit new roles in a limited number of areas.

Three simple steps to becoming a Who Cares? Scotland volunteer

  1. Complete our volunteer application form online – Your application will let us know about the volunteer role you wish to do and we can learn about your skills, experience and desires to volunteer and how much time you have to spare.
  2. Review of your application – We’ll take time to read your application. We do receive a high level of interest from prospective volunteers. Please note that this phase may take up to 14 days.
  3. We’ll be in touch – During this stage you may be asked to come in and meet with us for an informal interview – a ‘get to know us and you session’!

Following the outcome of your application, we will commence disclosure and reference checks for all of our volunteer roles.

If you have any volunteering enquiries or need help with our online application form please email our Volunteer Coordinator at


Although we have established volunteer themes and roles, we would welcome any other skills that you might be able to bring, whether it is from your current working life or a past role. Let us know what your skill is and how you and your specialist skill can support Who Cares? Scotland.

With thanks to Scottish Local Authorities, funding partners and donors who make our work possible.
