Community Support Volunteers – Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (Aberdeen City Services)

Join our amazing team of Community Support Volunteers in Aberdeen, who support people who have had one of our conditions to develop autonomy and confidence in self-management, enabling them to fully engage with their community and activities of their choosing. The service follows a pathway from hospital to community and can be delivered in a one-to-one and/or group setting in person, virtually or via telephone.

We also have opportunities for volunteers to become Walk Leaders, to safely lead community health walks either in a 1:1 or group setting, while effectively supporting people living with and at high risk of our conditions.

The service can be delivered to provide person-centred support for those with a communication difficulty and/or to support an individual to achieve a specific goal.

A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference for people and the community. Excellent support and relevant training is provided to all volunteers and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
