Volunteers are essential to the running of Strathmore Cricket Club enabling children, young people and adults to get involved and raise participation in this great sport.
There are a variety of roles that you can get involved in as a:
- Building Manager
- Ground Convener
If you have skills in any of these areas and want to help a local sports organisation provide sports and social opportunities for people of all ages, get in touch to find out more.
We are looking for welcoming and enthusiastic volunteers to lead and support short health and social walks in West Dunbartonshire - these walks are based in Alexandria, Dumbarton, Old Kilpatrick and in Clydebank.
Becoming a volunteer walk leader requires you to commit around an hour or two of your time weekly and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paperwork for the walk.
Health walks encourage people who have not exercised for a while, find walking boring, or lack confidence to join a walking group because they think they will not be able to keep up. The walks are free, short, low intensity, safe and social around the local environment.
Over the next year we plan to build upon our network of gentle exercise activities across West Dunbartonshire as part of the Walking Friendly West Dunbartonshire partnership. To help us achieve this we are looking for friendly and supportive volunteers who enjoy walking, meeting new folk while sharing the wide-range health and well-being benefits of gentle physical activity.
Volunteers all receive Paths for All Walk Leader training to give them the skills and confidence to lead walks in your community. Further training can lead to you to becoming a Dementia Friendly Walk Leader.
You will be encouraged to join a Health Walk and chat to a Health Walk leader before your training so that you have an idea of how it works on the ground.
Volunteer walk leaders receive on-going support from the Health Walk coordinator.
We all need to go for a walk once in a while for different reasons; to go shopping, visiting the GP, for our physical or mental health and sometimes just to socialise with others.
Walking can help people become more active, lose weight and become healthier but some people may need a little more support at the beginning and we want to be there for them.
The aim of the APEL initiative is to support people to feel they are involved in their communities and build their confidence to be as active as they can - we need your help to make it happen.
The walk leader will work as part of a team to encourage and support members of the public to become more active. Walk leaders will support walkers at a pace that suits the walker, ensuring that everyone enjoys the walks.
WDCVS are looking for enthusiastic, reliable people to take on the role of the walk leader to lead group walks using local walking routes in a safe, responsible and enjoyable way.
You will have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a practical difference to some - helping them stay safe when walking around, help them get out and about and staying active.
If you are looking for experience in leading groups, learning about risk assessing routes, this could be for you.
You will understand that for everyone’s safety you will be asked to go through a PVG (police) check, too.
The volunteer bike mechanic role in Bike Revolution presents a great opportunity to increase your understanding of various types of bikes, how they work and how to keep them in good working condition. Volunteers will work alongside a team of highly qualified bike mechanics, gaining quality experience from our professional team and, once past the initial induction phase, you can look forward to learning how to diagnose and repair problems as well as assisting the mechanics in the day to day running of the workshop. Bike Revolution are looking for those who live and breathe biking, be it throwing themselves down the sides of mountains, touring the length and breadth of the country, or jumping into some lycra and treading the tarmac. We are looking for people who are keen to get their hands dirty recycling, refurbishing and repairing the bikes we get donated, up to a standard ready for resale. In return, we can offer the opportunity to learn from our experienced mechanics, as well as trade deals on bike parts and cycling kit.
A successful and proven bike recycling project, Bike Revolution takes bikes that are either in disrepair or just unused, and refurbishes them for re-sale ensuring they meet strict in house quality standards.
Help others to become healthier and happier by leading our health walks. The walks are free, short and gentle, making it easier for people to become more active.
Apart from taking people on a walk, walk leaders will welcome new walkers, give route information (where, how long/ how far, hazards), encourage some social activity and deal with a bit of paperwork. Optional activities are assisting with promoting the walks and planning and risk assessing new routes.
It is up to individual volunteers to decide how much they want to commit, but to ensure some continuity we would ask that you consider your availability for leading walks before doing the health walk leader training day.

Tuesday morning Chatelherault, short walk
Wednesday morning Stonehouse
Friday morning Cambuslang
Saturday morning Blantyre

Scouts are getting back to Scouting in Moray! And there are many ways adults who are interested or want to find out more about the Scouting movement can help. Scouting changes lives by offering young people fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others that positively impact our local communities. Volunteers can give as much or as little of your time as you choose. From occasional to flexible roles, from leaders to admin help, from committee members to helpers, there are so many ways to get involved. Just have a five minute chat with the local coordinator and see how it goes!
Not all of Outfit Moray's outdoor instructors can drive a minibus, so we often need drivers to transport our groups from our base in Lossiemouth to the activity location in Moray. Minibus drivers require a D1 category on their licence. Join our pool of drivers!
This wonderful railway is operated entirely by volunteers and maintenance work to keep this railway in top shape has not stopped during the pandemic. Throughout the year a vast programme of work is undertaken by volunteers, ranging from working on the track, running the trains to rolling stock maintenance and building maintenance… and the list goes on. In fact, many of our volunteers try their hand at most of these various jobs as and when required – and a significant number started volunteering without having specialist skills in these areas in the first place. If you would like to lend a hand at the Railway, spend some time doing something truly hands-on, let us know.
