Our volunteers are crucial to the work we do at Epilepsy Scotland. They not only help us raise the vital funds we need to continue and expand our services but they also let people know we are here to help them as well as increasing the public’s understanding of epilepsy. Whether you can offer us two hours a year, or one day a week we have something for you!
Here’s what one of our current volunteers has to say about working with us:
“I volunteer with Epilepsy Scotland because they have supported and continue to support me and the many thousands of people affected by Epilepsy. I wanted to help to provide that same support for others in my position and decided that volunteering was a great way to do that. It feels great to give back and to do something constructive which gives me a focus and a purpose. All at Epilepsy Scotland have made me feel very much welcome and I feel like I am part of the team, if anyone is considering volunteering, I highly recommend it.” Dave, Epilepsy Scotland volunteer.
“Our invaluable fundraising volunteers, they ensure we have a presence in numerous places on the same day, in the same week and to interact with more donors, raising even more money. Without them, and their incredible gift of time, we would find it almost impossible to do what we do.” Lesslie Young, Epilepsy Scotland Chief Executive.
