Part of Cyrenians is our farm, located just west of Edinburgh where we grow a multitude of fruit and veg.
Income is generated from sales of these as well as homemade jams & chutneys. Additionally we have fantastic free-range eggs! Our volunteers are essential to achieve all these things. As well as a working farm, we are also home to a community of vulnerable young people, many with backgrounds of homelessness.
The Farm provides a range of opportunities for individuals, including young trainees, to develop skills and confidence as a step towards a settled lifestyle.
We’re seeking a volunteer with gardening, grass strimming and mowing experience, someone who’s perhaps retired but looking to keep a “hand in” or has free time this spring and summer during prime growing season.
This role will be to assist our maintenance employee in his various duties, including fixing equipment, fences, painting, checking on health and safety procedures and fire safety policies, masonry, joinery, plumbing, refurbishment projects and general site upkeep.
Volunteers are essential in every area of RDA life. From coaches to cake bakers, people support RDA in many different ways – and we always need more. Whatever skills you can bring, giving your time to your local RDA group will mean that more disabled people can enjoy the therapy and fun of horses.
Volunteering with RDA should be rewarding and fulfilling – and we want you to benefit from your time with us. Our award-winning programme of volunteer training means it’s not just our participants who get the chance to learn and achieve their goals.
We welcome volunteers of 12 and over, there is no upper age limit and we need a wide range of skills – not just with horses. RDA is a diverse organisation and we are at our best when we bring together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the RDA family, so why not find your nearest group today
