We are developing a longer-term project to upgrade our church hall to enable us to undertake some exciting projects to support the people, and especially young and old people, in local community in Mastrick, Summerhill, Northfield and Sheddocksley.
The first essential step in this project is to have an up to date set of scale drawings of the hall (including a hall, kitchen, stage, two storerooms and toilets), and then as we gain funds for each stage in the project, to be able to develop the plans for submission for funding applications and building warrants to enable work to be authorised.
The most important first step for us is to get a new set of plans drawn up, to enable a building warrant for work to be carried out to the lighting in the hall, to comply with requirements for an entertainment licence.
You will be able to draw the plans to the required statutory standards and support the building warrant application for this first stage of our work.
An important and fantastic volunteer opportunity where your help will make a real difference for the local community and be greatly appreciated. For further details please contact Nick Bowry, E Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org / Tel: 01224 789560 or 079 5060 7574

The Youth Outreach Bus or ‘Red Bus’ as it has become known is a converted double decker bus which has been completely re-designed inside to become a mobile youth drop in centre for ages s1-s6 (secondary school). It has Playstations, Music System (which plays both internally and externally) and a widescreen TV which can play DVD’s and be connected to the Nintendo Wii.

The bus currently operates in Dyce and Seaton, but is mobile and we are actively looking to expand to working in other parts of Aberdeen as well.
This is an exciting and unique opportunity to help with the only mobile youth drop in centre like this in Aberdeen.
A great opportunity to help, make a difference for young people and the local community and be part of a friendly, supportive team of volunteers.

The COVID-19 crisis is difficult for us all but people with caring responsibilities (unpaid carers) are under even more pressure and stress. Reduced/closed services mean that many carers have no choice but to care round the clock for loved ones without any hope of break.
Once the support is restored, many carers will feel burnt out and physically and emotionally tired. We hope that this is where you can step in. As a volunteer you will be spending 1:1 time with the person to give their carer a break
The Volunteer Befriender helps residents who feel isolated or unable to get out very easily on their own by giving time on a one to one basis to help a person maintain social contact, provide companionship and reduce loneliness and social isolation.
Volunteer befrienders build a positive relationship with an individual and visit them on a regular basis in their own flat. This could mean spending some time with a person for an hour or two every week/fortnight, we also encourage getting out and about for a coffee or short walk. Generally, befrienders are there to chat and get to know someone, have fun. Support the person to continue with existing interests, whilst encouraging them to embark on new activities.
