Recently, we welcomed Liz Wigelsworth to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. With over 15 years experience in the volunteering sector, we are delighted to welcome Liz as our new Head of Volunteering.

Liz joins us from the Prince’s Trust where she led the volunteering team to support 3,000 volunteers throughout the pandemic. Liz has also supported volunteers at a number of health charities, including the MS Society and Anthony Nolan.

“I am hugely excited and honoured to have joined Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland, as the new Head of Volunteering,” says Liz.

“I am committed to making sure that everyone has a great experience volunteering with us and that you feel safe, supported and empowered to become ambassadors for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland in your communities.

“Since starting in post a few weeks ago, I have been bowled over by the commitment, generosity and tenacity of volunteers across the organisation. A huge thank you for everything you have achieved for people living with chest, heart or stroke conditions.

“As I settle more into the role, I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing your experiences first-hand.”

We are delighted to have Liz join us as part of our amazing Volunteering team, who help to manage and support over 8,000 of our incredible volunteers.

So, what does Liz love most about working with volunteers?

She says: “Volunteering brings people together to tackle some of the major challenges we face including health and wellbeing and loneliness and isolation. It’s fantastic to be a small part of this powerful movement.”
