Why we want you

The Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland Growchapel project based in Drumchapel, is a Glasgow City Council initiative aimed at improving health and wellbeing through the benefits of creating and managing a wellbeing garden. Growchapel is a welcoming, inclusive site for the people of Drumchapel to enjoy, relax, and grow within. It is a place where everyone is included, where diversity and creativity are valued, encouraged, and always respected. It is a kind space, which supports wellbeing for us, our families, and the environment. Being a Wellbeing Garden Volunteer, you will support the delivery of the Growchapel project and work in partnership with the CHSS Health Defence team to manage the wellness garden. You will get to meet new people in your community and have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a valuable contribution to the awareness of CHSS.

  • Keeping pathways clean, and free from debris
  • Working alongside other organisations and community members who have their own plots within the Growchapel allotment site
  • Supporting the Health Defence team to develop the garden

The skills you need

  • Enjoy engaging with people, especially others who will be using the garden
  • A basic knowledge of plant care and the use of gardening tools
  • A good understanding of relevant health and safety issues
  • The ability to work outside in different weather conditions
  • The ability to volunteer independently, with guidance from Health Defence team

What’s in it for you?

  • Meet new people
  • Improve your own health and wellbeing
  • Learn and develop new skills
  • Use your skills and learn new ones
  • Take part in any courses offered by our Growchapel partners at Glasgow City Council


Reasonable out-of- pocket expenses will be reimbursed. These should be discussed with your Line Manager prior to outlay and must be submitted within the prescribed guidelines as detailed in the CHSS Volunteer Expenses Policy.


In line with our commitment to safeguarding, this role is subject to a Disclosure Scotland check and the satisfactory provision of two references.
