Searchlight Scotland is involved in managing more than 200 asylum seekers from around the world, currently residing at a facility in Aberdeen. We provide people with support and have a range of activities during the day.
We are recruiting volunteers to help us during the daytime mainly in running outdoor and sport activities.
Our volunteers help by:
• Creating and running different activities (sport, DIY, craft, walks around Aberdeen city, art lessons etc.).
• Drive clients to their appointments or to outdoor activities.
Our amazing volunteers provide us with their time, passion and energy, helping us to continue supporting the vulnerable people we serve in our community. In return, our volunteers have been able to:
· gain new skills and confidence
· enhance their CV and employability
· meet new people
· get training and support
· make a difference
If you wish to volunteer or for any further details please contact Eva D’ Amico, Volunteer Coordinator at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone.: 07927371717. More details are also available at our website: https://www.searchlightscotland.org/volunteer
Searchlight Scotland was founded in 2018 with a drive and hope to see societies most vulnerable receive trauma informed care and support in order for them to live the life that they deserve. Over the past few years we have seen many individuals come through our doors and start a journey to freedom from addiction, abuse, exploitation and many other life controlling issues. We are passionate about providing specialised care to those who have suffered trauma in their lives. We have a vision and a drive to identify and rescue those who are trapped in the travesty of human trafficking. We want to raise awareness and provide training to front line professionals to see as many individuals identified in Scotland as we can. We have a passion to see slavery ended in Scotland in our life time. We are committed to expanding and developing our services to see the long lasting recovery and restoration of many more individuals who have found themselves in very dark situations.
