Thank You Volunteers!

We want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our wonderful volunteers this Volunteer’s Week! Even though we celebrate and champion our volunteers everyday, we love that there’s a dedicated week to acknowledge the time, dedication and enthusiasm of volunteering.

Our volunteer’s dedication and commitment is essential to the work that we do. From supporting at events; helping to pack and send naloxone kits; providing support through Befriending and answering calls on our Helpline. You are always championing Scottish Families, and you help to get our message out there and promote support for families. Where would we be without you?!

It has been incredible to get to know our volunteers and the passion and energy shown is unparalleled! We are forever thankful for the time our volunteers have given and the difference they make for Scottish Families.

For Volunteers Week, it is important we can shine a light on all our volunteers who support us and celebrate their dedication.


Want to volunteer with Scottish Families?

Have you ever wondered how you can get involved and give back to Scottish Families? Could you share your experience to help others and encourage them into support you? We are looking for family members who would like to give input into our work in a structured way. To gain new skills and new experiences from campaigning to social media, writing and public speaking skills, and be an integral part of our organisation.

We want open-minded and positive people to represent our charity to help raise awareness of the needs of families impacted by someone else’s alcohol or drug use, the support we offer, and help us to raise money so that we can continue supporting families across Scotland. Family Champions will be given opportunities throughout the year to be involved in community events, fundraising and media. Volunteer hours will be given to suit your availability and all roles are flexible.

We welcome applications from a diverse group of people – whether directly involved in our support services and fundraising, or interested in knowing more about the work we do. If you have any concerns regarding accessibility needs or additional support needs for the role, please let us know and we can try our best to accommodate this. Any concerns or problems can be discussed in confidence and regular support is offered.

You will be reporting to the Volunteering Team who can be contacted at

In return for your volunteering, you will be offered both in-house and external training opportunities, all out-of-pocket expenses paid, regular one-to-one support and review meetings, and a Scottish Families T-shirt!

Simply fill in this form and we’ll be in touch!
