People across Aberdeenshire seeking new opportunities in 2020 are being offered the chance to become nursing support volunteers with a charity.

Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) has the places available to help children with life- shortening illnesses and their families.

Every week in Scotland three children die from an incurable condition.

By becoming a nursing support volunteer with the CHAS at Home team individuals can help make a real difference to the lives of the children and families cared for by the charity across Aberdeenshire.

People can start the new year by volunteering with Children’s Hospices Across Scotland charity.

Volunteering development manager Carrie Watt said: “We are committed to making sure that we help keep the joy alive for children and families, no matter how little time they may have together and that each moment is filled with as much happiness and fun as possible.

“Becoming a nursing support volunteer is a fantastic opportunity for individuals who have a background in nursing or child care to build on their existing skills but the opportunity to volunteer is open to all as full training will be given.”

The ability to drive, a clean driving licence and access to a car for business use may be needed when volunteering with families in rural areas and individuals can volunteer on any day of the week, in the morning, afternoon or evening.

Volunteering opportunities are flexible and depend on the needs of the families supported by the CHAS at Home team in Aberdeenshire.

The role of nursing support volunteers requires membership of the PVG scheme (children and adults). Applicants will need to be 18 years or over.
