We would really like to hear from you if you are interested in becoming a volunteer. Some experience of learning disabilities and/or craft or catering skills would be helpful but is not essential.

A broad range of activities take place at Garvald Edinburgh, so you may have skills that would complement the work of our permanent staff.  You could make a real difference by giving more time to an individual or extending the range of contacts people have.  At the same time there is an opportunity to refresh and develop your own skills and broaden your experience. Please note that we are looking for volunteers who are able to make a regular commitment for an extended period as this provides consistency and continuity for service-users – we are unable to offer short volunteer placements (i.e. less than a six month commitment)

Volunteers should be 16 years of age or over and you will be asked to ensure PVG Scheme Membership if your application is successful.

To discuss volunteering opportunities with us call 0131 346 2492.
