Volunteer Scotland is the national body for volunteering in Scotland and exists to help you make a difference through volunteering. Scotland, more than ever, needs us all to share in the nation’s common good. The potential to bring out the best in us has never been better, and we’re supporting you by:

  • Recognising the need for volunteers and demonstrating how this makes a difference
  • Understanding what volunteers and volunteer-involving groups or organisations want to do
  • Making volunteering easy for everyone, so that more people volunteer and have a great time.
