Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver through our services every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.
Our shops and community hubs in Scotland help us raise much needed funds so we can provide our services to the people who need us. Every one of our stores relies on a team of volunteers to help run the shop and support our staff. Quite simply, we cannot provide our services or raise funds without the amazing support of our volunteers. The time, support and the work they do is vital to us and the people we help. By helping out in one of our stores, you can make a difference to people and their families in Scotland who are isolated, scared or anxious about their condition.
Your level of involvement is arranged to suit, as we require weekly drivers, regular rota drivers and relief drivers who may be required to cover unavailability of our regular team. Volunteer drivers must be physically fit, reliable and caring, have good communication skills and have the ability to work as part of a team.
Potential volunteers must have a competent level of the English language.
You should have the use of your own car and hold a full driving licence for a minimum of 3 years.
Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland will advise all volunteers on necessary insurance.
The role includes:
Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland will provide all necessary training.
All volunteers are supported by their line manager.
