Volunteering at The Welcoming

Volunteers are at the heart of The Welcoming. We are privileged to have an amazing community of skilled and enthusiastic volunteers who help us to run our activities and welcome New Scots to Edinburgh.

Current opportunities

Health and wellbeing

We have now stopped taking volunteer applications for the Health and Wellbeing programme, due to an excellent response to our call for volunteers.

Befriending programme

We are not taking volunteer applications for the befriending programme at present, due to an excellent response to our previous call for volunteers.
