We have evening, weekend, and school holiday volunteering opportunities across the Lothians in our care and support services

What is in it for you?

  • Volunteering is a great opportunity to make a real difference in peoples’ lives
  • A chance for you to meet new people
  • Opportunities for you to learn new skills
  • Have fun

What our volunteers say?

“When I come back home from the club I feel that the day meant something, that I did something good and selfless. Even if I’m very tired I’m happy and proud of myself.
Saturday Adventure Club volunteer

“Volunteering with Lothian Autistic Society was rewarding not only because of the variety of challenges each day presents to you as a volunteer but also because the benefit of your work is obvious. Seeing the children you work with succeeding in things they didn’t think they could do, create new friendships and have a great time, is a constant reminder of why you are volunteering.”
