All our volunteers are required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme

Garden Project Volunteer

Our Gardening Project is located in Kirkcaldy and is open to all our members. It includes two plots within an allotment, as well as a greenhouse.

A good knowledge of gardening, in particular growing vegetables, is required for this role, with the ability to work unsupervised. You must be over 18.

Our volunteers are expected to attend an initial training/induction, with further appropriate training to specific tasks to be undertaken and agreed during support and development meetings with the Volunteer Development Officer. Curnie Clubs strive to provide on-going opportunities for learning and development.

In addition to helping us maintain our garden and ensuring it supplies us with produce throughout the year, you will be expected to work alongside club members. We recognise the value gardening offers for boosting mental and physical wellbeing and encourage our members to get involved with the planning, prepping, and maintenance of the garden.

We currently have opportunities for Garden Volunteers.

Community Bridge Volunteer

Community Bridge is a one-to-one, person centred support network with the main aim of providing additional support to individuals who are not quite ready to attend our Curnie Clubs. As part of the Community Bridge team your duties will include:

  • Make contact with individuals and support them via telephone and/or video calls. (When normal services resume this will also include meeting with individuals in a public setting)

  • Maintain weekly contact with people you are supporting

  • Support individuals in gaining confidence and setting a goal of attending their nearest Curnie Club

You do not need any previous experience, all we ask is that you are over 18, friendly, enthusiastic and willing to listen. There is a small amount of admin required and basic IT skills will be advantageous.
