Why Volunteers Matter

Volunteering with us really matters and can positively impact on the lives of Care Experienced young people.

We run phenomenal activities that are full of fun. From creative arts and DJ sessions each week to an annual summer camp for our young people. We also run national events and campaigns that influence positive change with professionals and community members.Our volunteers support all of this work, enriching and enhancing the experiences of our young people by bringing their skills, experience and passion to our movement.Our volunteering roles have three main themes;

Participation support (helping us to bring young people together by supporting youth work activities)

Influencing support (helping us to bring about positive change by supporting our campaigning and events)

Organisational support (helping us reach as many people as possible with administration, membership, marketing and fundraising)

The time that you are able to give makes a difference.

Our events bring together Care Experienced members from all over Scotland bringing about belonging and love. Our youth work creates a space where young people can feel a true sense of belonging and empowerment. Our campaigns show young people that someone is on their side and supporting them to celebrate their care identity.

We can make this the case for more young people across Scotland because of you. Volunteers matter to us. Register your interest here.
