Volunteering Hub

Volunteering is good for the soul! Its like a free dose of happiness. Not only are you helping others, but you're also boosting your own mood and overall well-being. It's a win-win situation!

 

A good volunteering match is one which aligns with your beliefs and results in you feeling a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

That match is different for everyone!

Many people want to be more involved in the community but don't know where to start - that's where this part of the site helps. You'll find a list of currently available, local opportunities - whether you're looking for something to dip your toe into from time to time, something that will give you a chance to meet others, develop new skills or opportunities that provide a longer term opportunity to be involved, hopefully you'll find something which appeals.

Our Community Action Plan is all about our Community coming together to make things happen so check back here regularly and you're sure to find a way to be involved that fits for you!

Details of current opportunities can be found below and information about community meetings are available HERE

Poppy Appeal 2024

Although poppy cans do not hit the streets until October for this year’s local poppy appeal, planning for it starts in the first half of the year.  Many of the volunteers who have helped in the past have either moved on or have stood down from house-to-house collecting.  It is evident that new volunteers need to come forward if the town’s local appeal is to match last year’s effort of just under £6K; only two or three areas of the town will be covered with current volunteer numbers. House-to-house collectors are needed for the following areas: Muir Estate, Benton Road Estate, North Crofts, Kincardine Road/Sydney Crescent, Parkside, Glenorchil Crescent/Place/Terrace and Orchil Road/Grampian & Easthill.  If you can give up a couple of evenings in October to support Armed Forces veterans in need, please contact David Homewood, Area Organiser on 01764 663049. 

Repair Cafe

We're keen to hear from people who would be interested in volunteering a couple of hours from time to time to help participate in a repair cafe - the idea is that many items could have their life extended with a little repair, whether that's a bit of sewing, some glueing, tightening up, but some people don't know how to do this - and therefore the items end up being chucked out. Wouldn't it be great to see things being reused more and also to help people learn a new skill? Interested to hear more? This project would be in partnership with Remake and they've significant experience in this area. Contact aanda.cap@gmail.com initially.
