We are always looking for volunteers. Without our valued volunteers we would be unable to run our services at The Meeting Place, Shopmobility and our home to Town Centre minibus service. Our volunteers help to support older & disabled people to enable them to feel part of their community.
We have a range of voluntary positions available, including Community Volunteer, Volunteer Bus Drivers and Bus Escorts.
We are looking for enthusiastic, reliable and committed volunteers to help out at The Meeting Place and to support the Shopmobility Service, duties include helping serve refreshments, assisting with events and activities being held within The Meeting Place. They would be also be helping out at the Shopmobility reception desk, take bookings both over the phone and face to face and to assist in the hiring out of equipment to our service users.
In addition to our services we operate a mini-bus service which makes it easier for our service users to get to the Town Centre. The mini-bus service is a popular service operating on a Monday – Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm. The mini–bus operates on routes throughout East Kilbride during the day bringing service users to the Town Centre and home again. The role will involve driving our mini–bus throughout East Kilbride on planned routes, collecting service users and taking them home again. This is a good opportunity to develop knowledge of working in a charity and community transport, working with people with restricted mobility and disabilities and customer service skills.
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right match can help you find friends, reach ,out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Volunteering can also help enhance your mental and physical health.
