Purpose and Aims of the role
Would you like to help young people with activities to build their skills and confidence and to help them build friendships? Could you spare two evenings per month? If the answer is yes we are currently looking for volunteers with experience of working with children and young people at our fortnightly participation groups. You could support the service to improve outcomes and the health and social wellbeing of young people aged around 12-20.
Scottish Guardianship Service is a partnership project between Aberlour and Scottish Refugee Council. The service works with unaccompanied asylum seeking children and young people who have been trafficked from outside the EU. We are currently based in the City Centre. We work with vulnerable children and young people who have arrived in Scotland without any family and they have to navigate the complex asylum, trafficking and welfare systems. Social isolation is an obvious consequence of arriving alone and it is important that young people have the opportunity to build their social networks and have time to relax and have fun and attempt to regain something which resembles a normal life.
