At Counselling Care we provide free Counselling to the community of Skye and Lochalsh. Although we are largely trauma orientated we provide specialist counselling in many areas. Our Counsellors have varied specialist knowledge and we are usually able to help with any issue that presents to us.
In order to provide our services for free we are completely reliant on our team of able and willing volunteer Counsellors. We need qualified (to Diploma Level) Counsellors who are members of the BACP, COSCA, or their equivalent who can spare 2-3 hours a week to work with our clients. All individuals will have been assessed.
Whilst we are looking for people to work online, over the phone or face to face, we especially need those who are willing to work in a Face to Face capacity. Supervision will be paid for and travelling expenses (within reason) will be honoured. You can also expect to be included in training provided for our Counsellors. You will be part of a friendly team consisting of paid, volunteer and student Counsellors, there are regular team meetings and communication with others within the organisation so you will not be alone.

The Treasurer Opportunity at Douglas Valley Church would suit either a retired accountant, financial adviser or professional book-keeper, or an aspirant student wishing to enter the financial profession. It is not a requirement for the post holder to have a profession of faith, although this would be welcome.
With an active congregation of just under 300 members, the Douglas Valley Church is a registered charity with a statutory responsibility to make an annual OSCAR return, subject to the approval and ratification of Presbytery Committee.
In addition to meeting the expenses associated with Ministry, and Pastoral care, the Church supports five paid part time employee positions, and has a commitment to support wider pastoral and charitable need in the local community. This includes support of early years and family initiatives, community volunteering, dementia programmes, and support to local and regional charities.
To service these commitments the Kirk Session meets on a six weekly cycle .The Treasurer would be expected to attend meetings to advice on cumulative annual expenditure and income, trends for the year with a comparison to previous years, and to offer advice to ensure the viability of Church finances.
The Treasurer would be appointed for a period of one year although the volunteer could tender their wish to terminate their services at any point. The volunteer would be fully reimbursed for all expenses including travel , stationary , and office materials.

Do you have an interest in pastoral care, some free time and a lovely, gentle dog? Then volunteering for Pet and Companion (PEACE for short) could be for you and your furry friend!
PEACE is a charity providing Canine Therapy along with Pastoral Care for people in need of support and companionship, particularly: the elderly; patients receiving end of life care; students during stressful periods; and vulnerable women.
Pastoral Carers and their therapy dogs (PEACE Teams) visit people in need of support and companionship in various locations, including: Care Homes; University and College campuses; and community hubs. Ideally, PEACE Teams will volunteer for a couple of hours a week/fortnight in order to build relationships with the people they visit.
The PEACE dog helps to provide a relaxing environment (the basis of canine therapy), while the Pastoral Carer offers both a listening ear and a means of support, happy to talk through any concerns or fears a person may have (pastoral care).
The role of a PEACE Pastoral Carer is similar to that of a befriender. All Pastoral Carers are therefore Christians, and are comfortable praying and/or discussing their faith with the people they visit, if requested.
All PEACE Pastoral Carers receive training in Mental Health First Aid, attentive listening and dementia awareness. Volunteers will also become members of the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) scheme.
For information about volunteering or any other enquiries about PEACE, please contact Georgie Treharne-Hulks, Volunteer Manager at email: email@example.com Further information is also available at www.petandcompanion.com
