Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland

Shop 'til You Drop

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) adds quality to life, every day. We are the only registered charity with a Scotland-wide remit to support children, young people and adults with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Since 1965 we have been supporting people in Scotland with spina bifida and we now support more people than ever before. Our services are not provided by the NHS or any other organisation. We are looking into the possibility of opening a charity shop to continue our fundraising efforts, however, due to limited resources to date we have not had the means to research the pros & cons of this.

Cancer Research UK

Maximising CRUK’s political impact though volunteering

Cancer Research UK Campaign Ambassadors are dedicated volunteers who help spread our policy messages to decision makers and within their communities. They’ve helped us achieve high impact legislative changes, such as increased investment in radiotherapy and diagnostic tests, and the introduction of standardised cigarette packaging. Our ambition is to maximise Cancer Campaign Ambassadors’ political impact, deepen their engagement and increase their likelihood to support Cancer Research UK more widely. In order to do this we’d like to work alongside a panel of agile strategists who could lead and advise on gaining insight into current Ambassadors (to target future recruitment) and develop the current volunteer journey.

The Access Project

Community Engagement Programme

The Access Project helps students from disadvantaged backgrounds win places at top universities. Affluent young people are currently 6 times more likely to attend a highly selective university than their less privileged peers: a significant factor in the UK’s declining social mobility. Our growth plans are ambitious: to nearly triple the number of students we support by 2020. Our intensive programme relies on volunteers to deliver weekly one-to-one academic tuition to students. Our volunteers are very committed and we have a high volunteer retention rate of 64%. To achieve our growth plans we must transform the way we recruit, retain and engage our community of volunteer tutors. “Volunteering for The Access Project has been very rewarding and I've thoroughly enjoyed [seeing] how my tutee is becoming more confident.”
