By volunteering your time as a individual or as part of a group, you can transform lives by helping to make amazing things possible. The Cornerstone Foundation can offer a range of opportunities to get involved, whether it be at events or as part of developmental projects.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to directly support vulnerable people within your community, please see www.cornerstone.org.uk for more information.
We host a variety of events each year to raise funds and awareness of the work we do. From concerts and fashion shows to fundraising dinners and sports challenges, we have a lot going on across Scotland.
We are looking for people to register their interest as being an Events Volunteer, so we can keep you informed of upcoming events and check your availability. The role we offer will include the following responsibilities:
- Assisting with the preparation of fundraising events
- Helping to set up venues before events
- Spreading awareness and promoting up and coming events
- Assisting with various tasks during events such as catering and selling raffle tickets
Registering your interest lets us know you would like to be informed of events near to you, giving you the choice to opt in or out should we get in touch.
If you have a look at our Events and Challenges list, you can see our upcoming events and see if we are looking for volunteers. To register your interest, please use the link at the bottom of the page.
Escape the workplace, roll your sleeves up and help us make a lasting difference!
Volunteering opportunities across our organisation are as diverse and inspiring as the people we support. We have an extensive range of fun and innovative opportunities that enable our supporters to build staff morale, make a lasting difference in their community and foster team spirit.
Here are just a few examples from our current corporate volunteering opportunities:
Are you a Picasso with a paint brush or Scotland’s answer to Alan Titchmarsh? Then we need you! We have opportunities for teams to help us bring a new lease of life to the homes of the people we support, at our projects and in our offices. This team challenge provides a meaningful chance to make a substantial difference to the lives of people we support.
Activities and outings
Visiting the zoo, taking a trip to the seaside, arts and craft sessions to Christmas parties – these are just a few of the exciting things the people we support take part in. We couldn’t make this possible without the help of our volunteers who provide companionship and a helpful hand.
More and more we are looking for people who can bring their skills to The Cornerstone Foundation. Whether it be holding a CV and interview skills workshop for groups of young people with learning difficulties, or performing nostalgic music for older people with dementia – if you have a skill to share, we need your help!
Long Term Volunteering
In addition to these one day activities we also have opportunities for individuals to volunteer on a longer term within our projects. If you would like more information please visit our volunteering page.
