Discover the joy of being a volunteer

Our incredible volunteers help to keep the joy alive for families all over Scotland. We’re committed to making sure that every volunteering experience is meaningful, rewarding and enjoyable.

Volunteers running with joy

Our volunteers are vital

Three children die each week in Scotland from a life-shortening condition. In donating their time, energy and passion, CHAS volunteers further our mission to reach every family that needs us. Our inspiring and dedicated volunteers are truly integral to how we keep the joy alive for the children and families we support.

Our volunteer stories give you a flavour of what you could get out of volunteering.

At CHAS we are proud to be the first organisation in Scotland to achieve the Investing in Volunteers quality standard. We were re-accredited for the fourth time in April 2018 and were delighted that the assessor recognised CHAS as a leader and innovator in the field of volunteering in Scotland. Investing in Volunteers demonstrates our commitment to providing a high quality experience to all volunteers in CHAS.


Your time matters – use it to spread joy

Any time you can spare really does matter. Get fundraising at work, school or college, cheer on participants at a sporting event or dish up delicious meals in one of our hospices – there are so many ways to spread the joy.
