The Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland was founded by volunteers and the work done by people offering their time, commitment and experience as volunteers continues to be vital to the charity.
Terence Higgins Trust Scotland fully train all their volunteers for the role that they choose and give them support and supervision to make sure that they are happy with the work that they are doing.
Why do people volunteer:
To give something back because they have received help from Terence Higgins Trust Scotland and now want to use their experience to help others;
To gain skills to help get them into a particular area of paid work or study;
To meet people;
To try something new.
How volunteers help:
The kind of help needed varies from centre to centre and the ways that you can get involved will depend on the amount of time you have to give. Most centres have volunteers who help with fundraising, working on the reception desk, doing health promotion in the community, supporting people in their home as a community support volunteer and giving advice on housing, immigration and benefits. However, there are lots of other roles as well.
