Are you looking for a new challenge and want to help your community?
Do you need help or do know anyone who needs helps with transport or shopping?
Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) are currently recruiting for volunteers and open to receiving referrals for those who need help with transport, shopping, or social companionship.
RVS' dedicated volunteers help take people to medical appointments or social appointments. This can be to a hospital appointment; your GP; dentist; opticians or to visit a family member in a care home; a social group or hairdressers! They can take someone further afield to a hospital appointment such as to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. They can also help with shopping by a volunteer doing your shop (shop and drop) or you can go with a volunteer (assisted shopping). If you would like to be linked to a friendly volunteer to call you regularly for a chat, RVS can find someone for you.
They accept self-referrals or from any organisation/family member/friend/neighbour. We are happy to consider referrals from people of any adult age. There is a charge to using the transport or assisted shopping service.
They are currently opportunities to become a volunteer with RVS. Volunteers are trained to the highest standard and provided with ongoing support including COVID-19 safety guidance; PPE and expenses are reimbursed for mileage.
