Volunteering Works V.I.O. taster session request (South-side Glasgow only).

We are seeking South Glasgow Volunteering Involving Organisations (V.I.Os) to work in partnership with, in the provision of volunteer taster sessions for our specifically funded (by LCPP-South) Glasgow South Volunteering Works (VW) Programme in the period of 11th June – 4th July 2019.

Our targeted programme aims to assist potential volunteers in the 18-25 age category to discover their southside Glasgow local neighbourhood volunteering options to help boost their employability prospects. We are recruiting potential candidates who live in the southside neighbourhoods of:

Govan & Craigton; Greater Pollok/Newlands/ Auldburn; Langside & Linn; Pollokshields & Southside Central.

Therefore, your VIO may benefit from local people volunteering for a local VIO!

Preferable dates for a VIO taster session would be.

Thursday 13th June (p.m)

Tuesday 18th & Thursday 20th June (p.m.)

Tuesday 25th & Thursday 27th June (p.m.)

Tuesday 2nd & Thursday 4th July (p.m.)

However, a Friday in that period may be suitable too.

We will cover the cost to VIOs to resource a 90 minute/2 hour taster session at £50 per session per group of 6 potential volunteers (if hosting a double group of 8-12 then £100 per session per group). On completion of the initial taster, if your VIO recruits any potential volunteer then we will provide the travel expenses for any volunteer to attend your VIO for the remainder of the Volunteering Works Programme.

If your VIO can partner with us in delivering this venture then please do complete the Pro- Forma below

Or contact Derek or Billy on 0141 226 2574 or email to

We’ll look forward to your response.
