I Need Volunteers

Interested in engaging volunteers?

If you are interested in engaging volunteers, our dedicated staff at CTSI specialise in supporting organisations that involve volunteers and provide volunteering opportunities. Whether you are just forming your organisation and need to know what structures to have in place to support volunteers; or whether you are well established and just need a boost in your volunteer recruitment, we are here to help.

In order to work with you on your volunteer development, you need to be a CTSI member. If you are not already a member please see the information here.

If you would like to speak with us about advertising your volunteering opportunities, please contact Louise Orr, or complete our Volunteer Opportunity Registration Form for each opportunity you have.

Once we have your opportunities, we will add them to our database and suggest them to potential volunteers. We will also advertise the roles for you via social media, when we are out at careers’ fayres, information stands etc, and send out information in our monthly volunteer e-bulletin. In addition to this, there is an option on the Volunteer Opportunity Registration Form to say whether you would like us to register your role nationally through our partner Volunteer Scotland.

  • If people want to learn something new, we enable that to happen by giving them the training and skills – and along the way they get good company and a sense of achievement from what they have made

  • I get a lot of satisfaction as an RSVP volunteer and I would recommend getting involved. Volunteering Matters to me because of the impact it can have on our community and making a difference to peoples lives. It gives me the opportunity to keep active and to contribute to my community in retirement.
    Bob Kerr Handyperson, Volunteering Matters
  • Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made - we both get so much out of it. I look forward to spending time with her every week and we are always commenting on how much we have in common! Loneliness is something that can affect anyone at any time, and it is projects like this that are so important in helping to stop it. I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless
    Katie Wardlaw Befriender, Volunteering Matters
  • It has been a good transition from working full time to volunteering. I had not done anything like this since my children were young as I worked full time for a long time but now I feel I can give something back to the community – and I am really enjoying this role. It is a great fit

  • I love the variety of work at Play Alloa – there is always something different going on – answering the phone, preparing for the Christmas fayre, parent information evenings, helping with surgeries and providing information for parents. I have really enjoyed being part of a team – everyone helps and supports each other
