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:
- If you would like to help people in our local communities access essential items such as food and medication, or provide a friendly voice and listening ear (over the phone at this time, due to current safety measures), you could help a local organisation who provide these services as a ‘Community Response Volunteer’ or a ‘Check In and Chat Volunteer’. HINT: The ‘Check In and Chat Volunteer’ role may suit someone who needs to, or would prefer to, volunteer from their home at this time, the ‘Community Response Volunteer’ may be a good fit for volunteers who are drivers because of the need for collecting, delivering and transporting essential items!
- A Falkirk High Street charity shop require Retail Volunteers to help with various tasks in the shop environment, including sorting donations, providing excellent customer service to customers, and creating interesting and eye-catching displays. Volunteers will join the rota system within the shop, and can work with the organisation to make their volunteering work best for them. HINT: A good role for people who like to have a (socially distanced!) friendly chat with customers!
- If you’d like to provide a friendly welcome and guidance for patients who arrive at Falkirk Community Hospital to attend the eye clinic, a local organisation would like to hear from you! The volunteer will make sure that people attending the clinics are aware of how they can access the space safely, and in line with all of the procedures currently in place. HINT: A friendly, welcoming attitude will be essential for these volunteers, as well as an ability to follow direction and articulate this to others!
- A local charity who provide counselling, and bereavement listening services in our area would like to hear from people who would like to volunteer their time to join their Board as a Treasurer. People who have experience of working in finance, or have other experience that would help them to be able to oversee the financial activities of an organisation may find this role a good fit for them. HINT: If you’re thinking about volunteering as a Board Member, Trustee or Treasurer for the first time and would like to find out more about what is involved in these type of volunteer roles, please get in touch for more information!
Contact us if you’d like to get started with one of these roles, by phone: 0300 311 9700, or email: email@example.com
