Volunteers are the backbone of any charity and we are always looking for enthusiastic supporters to give us a little bit of their time to join us in supporting everyone in Scotland who needs our help.

Would you like to: gain work experience; meet others; have fun; learn something new; fill in time or just share your own experiences. We are committed to supporting our volunteers and to making your experience a positive one – so call us today on 03455 211 600 and let's see how we can work together.

Volunteer with SBH Scotland

We want our volunteers to enjoy their time with us so let us know what you are interested in. That way, if you ever have a couple of hours to spare, we know we can get you involved with something you will really enjoy.

Currently we are looking for volunteers to help us bag pack at local shops or at can collections at local sporting events. Alternatively, do you know of the perfect location or venue to hold a can collection in your local community? Please let us know and we can contact them on your behalf.

Become a Community Ambassador

We are looking for volunteers across Scotland to attend cheque presentations or give talks on our behalf. Training will be provided and achievements like this look great on a CV! Alternatively, manage our counter collection boxes in your local postcode area. It's simple! We will place the counter boxes in local shops and as a Community Ambassador all you need to do is empty them every few months when we contact you and bank the income directly in your local branch.

To find out more about Fundraising Volunteering Opportunities within the Association please contact the fundraising team or call 03455 211 600.

The Saltire Challenge Awards are a recognised Scottish Award that are given to any 16-25 year old who takes part in a one off volunteering opportunity.

This award can be awarded on more than one occasion to anyone that volunteers regularly and is a great addition to your CV. Potential employers are always on the look out for individuals who can go above and beyond.

SBH Scotland work in partnership with the Saltire Awards to make every volunteering opportunity more valuable for the charity and for you by offering these special awards. If you're between 16-25 and volunteering for us please ask for further details by calling 03455 211 600.
