Minimum age to volunteer with Lead Scotland now 16 years old

2018 is the Year of Young People and to coincide with Volunteers Week on the 1st of June to the 7th of June, Lead Scotland is proud to announce that we have lowered the age limit someone can volunteer with us, from 18 to 16 years old.

CEO Emma Whitelock has said, “Lowering the minimum age for volunteering means we are able to offer volunteering positions to even more young people. Volunteers are so important to Lead Scotland as they play a vital role in providing services to our learners and fundraising much needed funds. We know that volunteers can gain a lot of experience in their role with us and this can be a real asset when applying for college, university or work so it can only be a good thing that more young people can benefit from this”.
