Community Fundraising in CHAS has five key income streams and engagement volunteers help fundraisers raise more money by using their own interests, contacts and networks.
Whatever your background, knowledge and interests you can help by volunteering in your own community raising money through the things that you enjoy.
Flexible time commitment - you can volunteer on any day of the week in the morning, afternoon or evening.
In your own community and supporting your local fundraiser at their office. We have five fundraising offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Kinross and Aberdeen
It’s important to us that you feel happy, safe and confident in your role. As a CHAS volunteer you will be invited to complete a short core learning package that is tailored to your role – your learning will include representing CHAS and basic health and safety. You can choose to learn as part of a group or complete the learning online. The learning won’t take up much time and will equip you with the skills you need to undertake your role safely and confidently. We are always developing new opportunities for volunteers to learn and offer a range of options for volunteers.
All volunteers are assigned a supervisor – this person will be your point of contact and will meet with you on a regular basis to provide you with support and guidance.
By helping CHAS to fundraise you are helping the charity develop our services for children and young people with a life-shortening condition. A visible presence in the community, you are the public face of CHAS and help to raise awareness of our vital services in the community. This improved awareness means that more children and families will know about and access our services.
You must be aged 18 or over for this role.
The income streams are Colleges and Universities, Company and Business, Community Events, Schools and Youth Groups and Community Groups which gives volunteers plenty of scope to get involved. If you have an idea to fundraise or knowledge of one of these areas you are ideal as a Community Engagement Volunteer.
We will pay your out of pocket expenses in line with the CHAS volunteer expenses policy.
CHAS is committed to providing a quality volunteering experience to all volunteers free from discrimination and prejudice.
