Here at Edinburgh Leisure, our wonderful volunteers play a vital role in supporting people in our Active Communities programme. They make an enormous difference to people’s lives and, quite simply, many of our projects couldn’t exist without them.
No matter which role you undertake as a volunteer, training and support will be provided.
While you support us to help our participants get and stay active, we will support you to get the most out of your time with us, empowering you to make your volunteering experience what you want it to be.
Take a look at the overview of our different programmes below, and register your interest in any that suit you. A member of that team will get in contact with you with more information and explain the next steps.
Volunteers support our team in our head office with the day to day running of our health and wellbeing programmes. This varied role involves administrative tasks and data entry on our computer databases.
This is a great way to gain some office experience, or a new routine with added flexibility while supporting our participants.
If you’re aged 45+ with a warm and open manner, why not volunteer with our friendly and sociable programme in a range of different outdoor and indoor activities?
Come along and help to improve health and reduce social isolation in older adults across Edinburgh.
Volunteers support qualified instructors to lead a range of low-level, indoor classes, which are ideal for those who are new to, or returning to being active, and are looking for a gentle start to help improve their health.
Volunteers assist a specialist instructor to lead indoor classes that support those who have had or are at risk of having a fall through strength and balance exercises. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of two hours each week.
