The Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest providers of volunteers in Great Britain, all doing fantastic volunteering work. It aims to inspire, encourage and empower people to volunteer and share their skills and talents in order to alleviate loneliness and isolation in older people. Activities will be supported by funds raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for a new Book Group in the Leith area. The role will involve helping with the basic organisation of the group and recruiting and welcoming new members. Full training will be provided.
Come and join us in making a big difference to the lives of isolated older people in your local community!

Charities, voluntary organisations and community groups are searching for volunteers, people like you! After more than a decade, the Annual Volunteer Recruitment Fair is firmly positioned as the capital city’s volunteering event of the year. It will showcase volunteering opportunities from across the city, putting potential volunteers in touch with hundreds of organisations.
If you’re considering volunteering, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet face to face with around fifty organisations currently looking for volunteers plus access hundreds of other volunteering opportunities, all under one roof.
Last year our volunteer recruitment fair helped around 1,000 people in their search for volunteering opportunities to make connections with the organisations that needed them. Make sure you’re one of them this year.
There are many benefits to volunteering, it’s a great way to use and develop your skills, try something new, make new friends and contacts, boost your confidence and general wellbeing, gain valuable experience, and of course, make a real difference!
