Volunteer for Rowan Alba’s befriending service, CARDS, and you can end the isolation of someone who has a problematic relationship with alcohol. All you need to do is have a regular conversation. As you talk, you might also learn alot about yourself from them.

Below is several ways you can volunteer for CARDS. All of them can all open up new skills and opportunities. Our volunteering programmes are designed to make a positive impact of real people in only a few hours a week.
