Our Virtual Home Assessors play a vital role in delivery of our service by interviewing potential volunteer pet foster carers to assess their house, home situation and the fosterer.
All of our home assessments are currently carried out either by telephone interview only (for cats,birds and small animals) or by video call (Zoom/WhatsApp) for dogs.
You can choose to be involved in one or both of the methods available.
You will be contacted by the Home Assessment Coordinator when a new applicant becomes available.
Main tasks include; contacting the potential fosterer by telephone/email/text to arrange a suitable date and time for the home assessment to take place. Once confirmed to carry out the assessment by either telephone or video.
A home assessment form will be provided to you for completion during the call which covers the criterias required by PFSS for the potential fosterer to be accepted. Once completed this form is then to be uploaded onto our database via our website volunteer team page.
“Meet me in Govan” is a community project that is created by Invisible Cities in partnership with Govan Community Project and it is a part of Invisible Neighbourhoods project.
This is a great volunteering opportunity for people who are looking for a weekly activity as our project runs every Wednesday morning. The walks start at 10.30 am and last about one hour, there are usually planned as a circular walk with starting and ending point at the Pearce Institute (reception). After the walk some indoor activities are planned in the Govan Community Project office (The Pearce Institute building) with coffees and teas which would last about one hour. The time schedule is between 10.30 am and 12.30/13.00 pm.
The Marshalling role will involve supporting the operating of the walks through setting up and helping guide the walks. The marshals will allow us to cater for people with diverse needs and abilities on the walks, as they will be able to support people who, for example, need to walk at a slower pace or take a shorter route. The marshalling role will be suitable for people with more limited English language skills, which is an objective of the GCP volunteering strategy.

In 2020 Scotland became the first country in the world to offer people free period products. We work with our partners Glasgow City Council to deliver this groundbreaking Act in the city.
Being excluded from basic sanitary and hygiene essentials contributes to the poor mental health and well-being experience of many people. We recognised this, so in 2017 our Period Friendly Project was born and offers free sanitary products to people who are experiencing homelessness. The Project has expanded over the past five years and we now have a presence in over 150 venues around Glasgow city, where people can collect Packs of sanitary towels and tampons. We have period points all across the city, and at the moment are particularly looking for volunteers to cover venues in postcode areas G20, G22 and G45.
Everyone who menstruates deserves access to sanitary products and Period Friendly volunteers help people have a ‘period of dignity’ every month.
