Volunteering not only makes a difference for others, it also makes a difference for you. There are a vast range of opportunities available, and we can find the right one for you.

As a result of the incredible response from our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, We have also launched VOLUNTEER FALKIRK, a new local volunteering phoneline providing you with up to date and relevant information about volunteering locally in the Falkirk and District area during this time. So whether you live in Banknock or Bo’ness, we can put you in touch with local COVID-19 volunteering initiatives.
The phoneline will be open 9am – 5pm, on: 0300 311 9700
Volunteering can help you:
- Gain new skills and experiences
- Update your CV
- Meet new like-minded people
- Build your social life
- Have fun
- Increase your confidence
- Give back to your community
Saltire Awards for youth volunteering:
Young volunteers (12-25 years old) can also take part in the national Saltire Awards programme. There are 3 levels of awards:
- Challenge – for taking part in a one-off group activity
- Approach – individual awards for 10 or 25 hours volunteering
- Ascent – individual awards for 50, 100, 200 and 500 hours volunteering
Recognising the contribution of your volunteers is very important, and we hope that the various events we’ve had over the years will inspire your organisation to hold your own volunteer celebration. To this end, we have put together some ideas we hope will inspire you to hold your own celebration.
During Volunteers’ Week, as part of the celebrations, we also provide organisations with our Celebrating Volunteering Certificates and Long Service badges for their volunteers. If you are interested in participating in this initiative, please contact CVS Falkirk by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
