Welcome to the search engine for volunteering within Falkirk!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most volunteering opportunities and roles have been suspended.
However, as restrictions are lifted more opportunities are becoming become available, with organisations seeking volunteers more than ever to support their activities. Please check out this page on a regular basis as we highlight the opportunities coming online, including:
- Volunteers who have some skills in wood work and using wood working tools, or who are keen to learn, are needed in the Grangemouth area to help transform recycled and donated timber into useful items for local community projects. Creations so far have included bird boxes, hedgehog homes, raised beds for growing vegetables, benches, shelters, mud kitchens, desks, and shelves. HINT: We think this would be a great opportunity for volunteers who like to keep themselves busy outdoors!
- A local organisation would like to hear from people who could volunteer their time to be Compassionate Neighbours. They are always looking for kind individuals who are able to commit to a couple of hours a week to visit someone or take them out for a short trip (COVID guidelines allowing). They would also like to hear from people who enjoy writing letters and speaking over the telephone, and would like to use these to help someone in our local communities feel less isolated. HINT: Volunteers who like having a ‘good blether’, and find it easy to chat to others, might be a good fit for this role!
- After a fantastic initial response, a national charity who aim to make sure that digital services are accessible to everyone are still recruiting for some extra Falkirk-area ‘Tech Volunteers’, these volunteers are matched with people in their local area who need some help and guidance on choosing, using and getting the best from their digital devices. This service is an invaluable resource for people who are increasingly relying on digital devices to stay connected, due to COVID restrictions. HINT: As well as having good IT and computer skills, these volunteers will be able to be patient and kind with those who are still learning!
- A local organisation wants to hear from volunteers who are able to provide practical and emotional support to people in our local communities. Could you help someone by completing home visits, helping them practise their mobility by accompanying them on gentle walks, or perhaps meetings them outdoors or in a café? Of course, each person who receives support from a volunteer will have different needs but they will all appreciate a friendly and encouraging manner from a caring volunteer. HINT: Some experience or knowledge in health and social care, or being interested in developing these, may be helpful for volunteers interested in this role!
