Volunteering

Volunteering is not only an amazing way of giving your time to help other people but it is also a fantastic opportunity to enhance your own life. Utilise old skills or maybe learn new ones, create new experiences and build lasting memories.

 

Volunteer roles are great for your CV and employers love to see people who give back to their communities.

 

The Butterfly Trust are always actively looking to recruit and up-skill new people to provide our face to face services to Scotland’s Cystic Fibrosis community.

When I decided to volunteer with the Butterfly Trust I was pleased to find that the staff were very supportive throughout the application process. I was given lots of information about the different roles and decided that the Befriending Service sounded the most appealing to meet my needs. I love this volunteering opportunity because I can see the impact that I am having on a young person living with Cystic Fibrosis.

Sophie, Befriender

I feel that my role is a great way of using the skills I already have as well as challenging me to deal with new situations. By helping resolve a benefits or housing issue I know I have eased one worry for someone who has a lot to deal with - this is really satisfying.
