Helping out in a BB group with children and young people can make all the difference to young lives – meaning happier young people, happier communities and a society that values the contribution that we can all make; young, old or in-between. We call our volunteers “leaders” because they guide a course for children and young people.
Many of our volunteers say they’ve learned things through their involvement with BB that have helped them to get new jobs or even change career. This would be ideal for someone undergoing Teacher Training. For example, as well as helping out in a local BB group, you might like to train as a Trainer and help run courses for other volunteers. Once you volunteer there’s a whole world of opportunities for you to participate in within our movement – locally, nationally or internationally.
For further information about the Boys’ Brigade within South Ayrshire, please contact – Stuart Hyslop, Ayr Battalion Secretary, Tel – 07709 715545 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also visit our website ayr.boys-brigade.org.uk or the Boys’ Brigade main website – boys-brigade.org.uk for any other assistance.
Research shows that the fact we volunteer and help others makes us happier! If you choose BB as the place to volunteer, that would make us very happy!

- Coordinating and banking local collecting cans, keeping an eye out for new sites

But we also want to hear about any specific aptitudes and experience which you think would be useful in any of the activities outlined above or any new skills you would like to develop through volunteering.

What are the benefits to the children and families supported by CHAS?

This improved awareness not only helps to raise money, it also means that more children and families will know about and access our services.
CHAS is committed to providing a quality volunteering experience to all volunteers, free from discrimination and prejudice, ensuring that CHAS is an equal, diverse, and inclusive organisation so that we can improve the quality of care we provide, reach more families and children and maximise a wide variety of knowledge, experience and expertise.

Provide support to people stuck on roads
Act as a steward during civic and cultural events.
