Opportunities for Volunteers

Existing volunteers with Lead Scotland can find more information and support on our volunteers page.

We have many different types of volunteer roles that support disabled learners and carers in local projects such as Perth, Dundee, North Lanarkshire, Fife, Inverness, Moray and Edinburgh along with roles that also support the wider organisation throughout Scotland. We even have volunteer positions that you can do online from home or roles that get you out talking to groups and organisations about our work. For more information and to see how you can get involved please contact Gail our Engagement and Development Officer on 07768917498 or email gphillips@lead.org.uk.

You can read our Volunteer Application Pack and apply to volunteer with Lead Scotland by emailing gphillips@lead.org.uk. Our youth volunteers can check out the Year of Young People 2018 page. There are many benefits to be gained from volunteering: 

  • Self development through volunteer training opportunities
  • meet new people
  • Add value to your curriculum vitae (many volunteers have gained or changed employment by volunteering with Lead)
  • Have your out-of-pocket travel expenses paid
  • Volunteer flexibly to suit your other commitments
  • Widen access to learning and make a difference
  • We can provide a reference to a future employer if that would be helpful
  • Receive certificates of attendance for training undertaken
  • We are committed to offering inclusive volunteering opportunities and we want you to have a good experience volunteering with Lead.

In our Volunteer Impact Survey 2017, 100% of respondents said that they would recommend volunteering with Lead to a friend! Full results of our 2015 volunteer survey.
