Volunteering Opportunity: The State Hospital Board for Scotland

Role Title: Volunteer Visitor

Location: The State Hospital, Carstairs, Lanark, ML11 8RP

Due to the location of the hospital, many of the patients live some distance away from family and friends.  These patients are therefore limited to engaging in social interaction with staff and peers.  This is where volunteer visitors help and support patients to maintain social contact and improve social skills; helping them feel valued and part of a wider community.

There is a small bit of paperwork involved with completing visitor feedback documentation.

If you would like further information on any volunteer roles, please all us on 01698 300390 or email volunteer@vaslan.org.uk. You can also view this opportunity on the Volunteer Scotland website.
