Independent Living Service Volunteer (Aberdeenshire)

Opportunity image

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.

This service is available 7 days a week 9.00am - 8.00pm depending on needs.

We would like you to :

  • volunteer at least 4 hours a week within the above times

  • to drive and have use of a car if possible, though this is not essential
