Our volunteers

 We have over 40 volunteers working with CARDS (Community Alcohol Related Damage Service). More will be featured on the website soon, they are just a bit camera shy!

A senior volunteer’s role description should in my mind incorporate:

  • being a good listener
  • full of encouragement
  • facilitator
  • flexibility with suggestions for ways forward
  • supportive of ideas and thoughts
  • negotiate a different path when deemed necessary

Reading over my wee poem (written a year or so ago) I feel it says what I basically think for all volunteers in varying degrees!

V  a vital, valuable and varied venture

O organised, open minded, open ended observations and to facilitate optimum ‘opporchancities’!

L  liaison and linked learning for a legacy

U  unburden to be understood and upbeat

N  negotiate and navigate needs to nurture

T  thoughtful and thought provoking tangible timescale tonic

E  empower expectations to equip and enrich

E  enthusiastically and energetically engage, educate and encourage

R  respect, realistic, resourceful and REWARDING
