General Volunteer

General volunteers, who are happy to help on an ad hoc basis or on a regular basis are a great addition to our staff. The sort of help we need might be for example at fundraising events or it might be to help us when we are doing a mailout to our members. It might also be picking up a cheque on behalf of the charity from a fundraiser.

Some of the tasks include;

  • Managing a small collection of static collection cans in local shops
  • Helping our admin team in the office process thank you letters
  • Volunteering with our speaker program where we pair someone who has Ds with someone who doesn’t and as a pair they present a short talk
  • Helping with a mail out to our members
  • Helping out at a fundraising event
  • Picking up a cheque or taking part in a photo opportunity

If you think that you would like to help and can afford to spend regular (or sporadic) time volunteering for us, please email fundraising@dsscotland.org.uk and someone from the team will make contact with you and arrange an informal interview to see what you think you would like to do to  help us.
