Red Cross Independent Living Volunteers sought for Borders



For people leaving hospital, adjusting to life at home can be a difficult time. Helping someone get their essential shopping, pick up their prescription or get the heating turned on can make all the difference for them to feel safe at home.

We have volunteering opportunities throughout the Scottish Borders including but not limited to Hawick, Peebles, Eyemouth, Galashiels, Cheviot and Teviot. This opportunity is available 7 days a week 9.00am - 7.00pm depending upon service user needs.

We would like you to:

• volunteer for 4 hours per week, either one 4 hour shift or 2 x 2 hours.

• drive if possible but this is not essential.

Why we want you

If you are compassionate and like helping and meeting people, then this could be the role for you. Volunteers like you support people who are leaving hospital, helping to build their confidence so that they can continue to live independently in their own home.
