Description

Are you an open-minded, cheerful and supportive person? Sustainable Connections Transport Team (SCOTT) is here to help you to grow.

This project is designed to tackle exclusion of people who are unable to benefit in full what Aberdeen has to offer due to limited mobility. Did you know, that mobility problems are caused not only by a physical disability, but also by:
• anxiety,
• loneliness and exclusion,
• low income,
• lack of self-confidence,
• lack of support while being out and about.

As a volunteer you can bring change to people's life in various ways:
• Some of your clients will need a supportive individual to accompany them while being out.
• Many of your clients rely on public transport and that means that they need to be met at an agreed destination.
• Number of your clients will feel excluded from social life and they will be seeking for a company over a cup of coffee.
But supporting clients is not the only way to participate. How would you feel about taking part in one of our events? Maybe you are good at getting sponsors on board. Do you think marketing is your thing? Are you social media savvy? Come and join us!

There are no limits when it comes to time you can dedicate. Speak to us about your availability.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

We are investing in our volunteers to ensure that they get the best employment opportunities there are. All volunteers will get a choice of learning British Sign Language, First Aid, Disability Awareness, Guiding People with Visual Impairments and the list is growing. We always encourage our volunteers to come to us with any training ideas.
