The management committee/board members help to direct the activity of the organisation, ensuring it is well run and delivering the outcomes for which it has been set up.
Please note that volunteers interested are to email: email@example.com.
Volunteers are required to befriend young people aged between 7 and 17 years old. Together they will participate in fun activities and outings; which the young people would not normally have the opportunity to experience. The young people COVEY work with are referred to us by social work; education or other agencies. They could be experiencing problems within their family; school or community. They may be feeling isolated due to a lack of peer friendship; family support; a health problem or perhaps just need a break from caring responsibilities in their own family life. Befriending is very rewarding and with our training and the support of your coordinator you will be able to navigate any challenges that arise. Befrienders and young people can both benefit from the new friendship and enjoy shared experiences. There is no cost to volunteers, however we ask for 2-3 hours of your time per week.
COVEY are currently continuing to recruit Befrienders both for group and one to one matches. There is an upcoming opportunity for you to take part in our Befriender training online via Zoom. On successful completion of this training, along with our application process and, PVG and references checks you will be able to support vulnerable young people through online groups and/or regular telephone contact. COVEY expects a one year commitment from all Befrienders however given current circumstances there is more flexibility around this and you are able to commit for 3 months, 6 months or one year dependent on your own circumstances
COVEY Befriending; Pathways to Confidence is an innovative partnership project between COVEY Befriending and Bellshill & Mossend YMCA. The focus of the project is on mentoring and befriending through supporting the whole family; to ensure positive longer term outcomes.
With our values of passion; openness; respect; innovation and commitment we are looking for mentors to be a role model to our families. The overall aim is to provide help and guidance directly to parent/carers to improve overall outcomes for them and their family unit.
Volunteers should have a genuine interest and commitment towards children and young people and family members experiencing difficulty in their lives.
We are looking for volunteer drivers to transport some of the vulnerable young people we work with to various locations throughout South Lanarkshire to participate in activities. Most of this work takes place during weeknights; especially during school term time.
COVEY are currently continuing to recruit to this role however as a result of the lockdown groups are not currently taking place. There is however the option to express an interest in this role, complete the required recruitment checks and online training to allow you to commence as soon as groups start back.
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.
