Whatever their reason for joining us, our volunteers feel they get a lot back. From
the satisfaction of helping someone through a tough time, to learning new skills
or meeting like-minded colleagues, find out what being a volunteer with us could
mean for you.
The opportunities on offer
We have a wide range of roles, all of them vital to keeping our service running.
Find out whether you’d like to help people directly in our playrooms, or use your
skills in an area such as fundraising or admin.
We offer you:
Development of new skills
(after 6 month commitment)
Help with your CV
I’d like to, but…
There are all kinds of reasons to stop yourself from finding out more about becoming
a volunteer with us – from feeling that you wouldn’t be good enough, to a concern
over how much time it will take. Our team are happy to help asnwer all these questions
We're looking for:
Office Volunteers for our 6 centres
What we ask you for:
3 hours/week Minimum*
* we ask that in return for our investment in your recruitment, training and ongoing
support/development that you commit to us for a minimum of 6 months
Make new friends
Increase your chance of finding paid work
Prepare the way for your future into college, training, or chosen path
Increased your confidence
Feel good about Yourself
Find out more – without committing yourself
If you’ve ever wondered whether volunteering with Sure Start is for you, give our
head office a call on 0131 654 0489
It doesn’t commit you to anything. It simply tells us that you’d like to find out
more, and which of our 6 centres is nearest to you. That centre will get in touch
and invite you to an information session, where you can probably talk to people from
your area who already volunteer, and ask as many questions as you like.
We positively welcome enquiries from all sections of the community, including Black
and Minority Ethnic groups, people with disabilities and members of the LGBT community.
