Volunteering is at the heart of a pro-active, healthy, fair and progressive society.
We want volunteering to be a rewarding experience that can be enjoyed by everyone in Scotland, regardless of their background, identity or personal circumstances. To find out more about how we’re trying to make volunteering as inclusive as possible, please click the links below:
