CHAS has hundreds of volunteers spread throughout Scotland, who are involved in every area of our work – caring for our children and families, raising money to pay for our vital care, providing administrative support… the list is endless.
Volunteers help us reach more families than we could possibly achieve without their support, and their enthusiasm and energetic support for the work of CHAS is welcomed by our children, their families, and our staff alike.
"We all make very good friends - I think that's one of the wonderful things about volunteering."
What can I expect if I volunteer for CHAS?
When you volunteer with us you’ll receive all the training and support you’ll need. We will also cover your travel expenses and you will get the opportunity to attend any events that are happening throughout the year.
What will CHAS expect from me if I volunteer?
We appreciate that successful volunteering is not just about how it benefits CHAS, it’s also about making sure that our volunteers obtain the most they can from the experience. Just as we strive to honour our commitment to you by providing you with a suitable volunteering role, we expect all our volunteers to do the same for us. If, for example, you are unwell or realise you are unable to continue your volunteering commitment to CHAS, we ask you to let us know as soon as possible.

I am under 18, can I still volunteer?
If you are over the age of 16 you are able to volunteer in our shops or hospices but not at other CHAS sites. If these roles don’t suit you or you’re under the age of 16 you may like to consider supporting us through fundraising instead.
