Volunteer Role:

Join our amazing team of Community Support Volunteers in Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross, who support people who have had one of our conditions to develop autonomy and confidence in self-management, enabling them to fully engage with their community and activities of their choosing. The service follows a pathway from hospital to community and can be delivered in a one-to-one and/or group setting in person, virtually or via telephone.

We also have opportunities for volunteers to become Walk Leaders, to safely lead community health walks either in a 1:1 or group setting, while effectively supporting people living with and at high risk of our conditions.

The service can be delivered to provide person-centred support for those with a communication difficulty and/or to support an individual to achieve a specific goal. To undertake your role, you will be required to undertake membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Adults) schemes in Scotland (PVG).

Organisation aims and objectives

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 every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to. Across Scotland, over 1 million people – that’s one in five of the population – are living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke. By 2022 we will double the number of people we support so that more people can live life to the full. We will do this by providing vital advice, information, and support through our No Life Half Lived Support services across Scotland. These services include our Advice Line, Stroke nurse service, Rehabilitation Support service, health information, health defence, education and e-learning, financial advice and support and our peer support groups.
