Volunteering for Everyone!
We are a volunteer led organisation and therefore you are at the heart of everything we do. Without the generous donations of time, commitment, and experience from individuals across the City and further afield we would not be able to achieve all that we set out to.
There’s something for everyone!
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the number of volunteers we can currently take on is limited per project. However, please don’t let this discourage you as there are still many ways you can make an impact. You can view our COVID-19 statement or contact us for more details.
Our Community Gardeners come from all background with different levels of experience who help develop and maintain our community gardens and other outreach projects. In good weather (and occasionally poor) you get your boots dirty and help dig-in. We’ve plenty of projects launching this year that could do with a hand so why not come along, get your fingers beneath the soil, and support us as a volunteer?
As part of our commitment to creating a kind, confident, and connected community we also want to create a green one. Help us as a Clean-Up Volunteer by reducing and recycling the litter on our streets across Aberdeen. We meet as groups but you could also volunteer to do a solo clean, perfect during lockdown and as an activity whilst on your daily walks. We’ve got the equipment if you’ve got the enthusiasm.
As a charity you could help us continue to be sustainable by helping us as a fundraising volunteer. Either help us at our arrange events such as bag-packing, holding a stand, selling raffle tickets and cakes, or jump into the fundraising driving seat and help us plan an event from balls or quizzes. If you have an idea or want to be a Fundraising Volunteer then get in touch!
The world has changed, we’ve become digital! So whilst working from home or stuck inside you could help us spread our message further afield and to a bigger audience by creating dynamic and engaging contact online and encouraging others to get involved with our many projects. Our digital volunteers help from creating posts, responding to queries, or testing new online content and promoting to their own networks. Have an idea, get in contact and volunteer.
We have a fabulous, and ever growing, student population in Aberdeen and your enthusiasm, experience, and commitment helps us move forward towards achieving our goal. Consider getting in touch and volunteering as a society, group, or individual. If you are looking for interning experience please contact email@example.com.
Whether your team want to fundraise for us or donate their time and skills there are many ways to put your staff right at the heart of what we do and make a real difference to communities in Aberdeen. There are many fun ways to be involved, from team challenges to a wide-range of volunteering opportunities and everything in between. If you want to learn more please contact our team here.
So Want To Become A Volunteer?
Do I have to regularly commit to become a volunteer?
The simple answer is no, any time you are able to give is always appreciated and during the growing year there is always lots of different projects happening that you can choose to get involved with that fit around your family and social life.
I’m not green fingered, is there training available?
We provide training throughout the year with different courses on growing your own food, maintaining our community gardens, planting trees, cooking and much more.
If working with children will I need a PVG?
You do not need a PVG to become a volunteer with us, however, for any work that involves children we will fund for a basic or enhanced PVG depending on the work carried out, at no cost to yourself.
Can my school or uniformed group get involved with one of the projects?
Yes please! If you have a school or uniformed group that wants to support our edible gardens or community projects then please get in touch. (Link to contact us).
