During the pandemic, our group calls with veterans from all across Scotland have been hugely popular and a great way of keeping our engagement with them during a difficult time. Because of the success we’ve seen in encouraging greater peer and personal support for our members, we want to keep these calls running beyond the pandemic and are looking for volunteers to facilitate the groups.
We need friendly and motivated volunteers who can take part in these calls in a group facilitator role. You would be volunteering from home initially, but as we emerge from the pandemic other options can be discussed. An experienced staff member will join you on your first few calls, and plenty of other support is available.
There is so much we can offer within this piece of work, and events to date include quizzes, games, and facilitated discussions of relevant topics. We have also trialled an art group over our group conference system. We know much more is possible in the future, so this is a volunteer role you can really develop and explore with us.
As a volunteer, you will get to know inspiring people, gain valuable experiences, and help us to change the lives of those who have served their country.
