    Rowan Alba

    This opportunity takes place from 26 Sep 2014.

    The newest of the Rowan Alba services, CARDS, works with people in Edinburgh who have a problematic long-term history of alcohol use. It’s a volunteer-led service which focuses on people who find it hard to get physical or emotional help elsewhere because they choose to continue drinking. Rowan Alba and Cards, however, respect the right of everyone to make their own decisions in life. What Cards volunteers do is offer support, information and alternatives to help the people themselves make healthier life choices and, when they are ready, move their lives on.

  • And make a big difference to someone's life. We're nothing without you Guide Dogs relies on volunteers who give their time for so many things. From the volunteers who spend much of their time caring for dogs, guiding people who are blind or partially sighted, driving or raising funds, to those who come out occasionally to hold a tin or cheer on marathon runners, volunteers are closely involved in almost every area of activity. And whilst we have many established roles for volunteers to take part in, we're also keen to hear from groups and individuals with skills, experience and expertise to share or if you just want to give an hour or two of your time to doing something good. But don't worry if you haven't volunteered before or you're not too sure what you could do, there really is a role to suit everyone. Just get in touch. By volunteering for Guide Dogs you'll be helping to make a huge difference to the lives of people who are blind and partially-sighted. But that's not all - you'll be part of a great team, you'll be learning new skills and we promise you'll have a lot of fun!
