• Relationships Scotland-Counselling Highland, are a relationships counselling charity based in Inverness, serving Highland region. Prior to counselling sessions each new client or client couple are asked to attend an intake session where information is gathered for the counsellor and for national statistics – it covers all the non-therapeutic information that is needed so that the counsellor does not have to take time doing this, and also acts as a screening service to ensure that the client has come to the right place – if there are doubts then they are signposted to an alternative agency.
Home- Start Stirling works with families who have at least one child under the age of five years who are experiencing stress or crisis within their daily life. Our home-visiting volunteers visit a family once a week for 2-3 hours to help the family with whatever they need. This can take the form of emotional and practical support and can involve helping a family to get out and about, playing with children, providing a listening ear or support to access different services. Home- visiting volunteers work with the same family until it is agreed that the support is no longer required.
We are a child protection and wellbeing charity providing legal services that low-income parents could not otherwise afford. Most have either lost a family court case to care for their children at home for trivial reasons.
About 80% have learning and/or physical disabilities and need help in understanding the Court processes and social work law. Our first stage and a child protection protocol is a list of nine simple questions that most people can answer without assistance. This lets us know how or if we can help them appeal a bad decision by the family Court or Social Workers.
Very often, people need an independent professional parenting assessment. This is the parent’s examples of topics such as healthy eating, resilience and education. I am the assessor, it would be inappropriate for me to advise parents. A volunteer can guide parents who need help, which is perfectly acceptable.
Parents might need a keyworker, someone they can talk to about their problems and keep us updated on any issues we need to address.
After a few months and the appropriate training, we need help preparing cases, writing a summary, evidence list and emailing copies of Court Orders and reports for our solicitors.
For further details about volunteering with us please contact Gerry Hannah, Trustee Chair at email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel.: 0777 3722 767.

Peep is looking for caring and enthusiastic volunteers who would like to help at our baby and toddler groups throughout the city. We offer free groups that promote attachment based activities (i.e. singing, book sharing, different types of play) to parents and carers in Aberdeen. Our groups are very popular with most having a waitlist, but as a small team we can only offer so many sessions. We’re initially looking for volunteers to help us at the groups but there is a potential for volunteers to receive training to eventually deliver their own Peep groups.
If singing and playing with small children isn’t for you, we’re also looking for volunteers to help us with our resource library. Our library has approximately 5000 items and it is a job in itself to keep it up to date. Our library needs someone who can help us clean, sort, repair, and develop new resources that can be used at groups. Although not essential, we appreciate volunteers who can and are willing to sew and be crafty!
For further details please contact Natasha Martens, Peep Coordinator at E Mail: email@example.com or tel.: 01224 248389.
