What can we say about our volunteers, they give us a reason to keep our faith in humanity. A selection of the most wonderful people we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. The fact that they can give up their time, week after week, means the world and more to us. Have a look below to find out what they think of us and more :-) Click the button to volunteer, we would love to meet you.
I was introduced to Future Choices through the Secretary Lesley. She had continously encouraged me to come along to the weekly sessions at Inchgarth Community Centre and show some of the members how to embriodery and other needle work. I had never thought that the other members would enjoy the hobby as much as I do, but I received a great response from the members. Since joining, the members, committe and other volunteers have become very close friends of mine and Future Choices has become a permanent fixture in my life. I truly value the time spent with these wonderful people.
I’ve volunteered for Future Choices for just over a year and I absolutely love it! Both members and volunteers have been so friendly and welcoming; it’s a lovely group to be a part of. Volunteering for Future Choices has given me the opportunity to meet people of all ages and gain new skills whilst also helping an amazing cause that makes a huge difference to lots of lives.
I’m Paul and I’ve been volunteering with Future Choices for nearly three years now.
I come along each week as a helper at the sessions for a couple of hours. Our role as volunteers is to support the vulnerable and disabled members in active socializing, playing games, talking with them about their week and just having a listen. We share coffee and lunch and I’ve learnt new skills in dominoes, tattie bowling and giant skittles.
I drive one of the minibuses every second week, picking up members from around Aberdeen, helping them on and off our wheelchair adapted bus and bringing them safely to the meetings at Inchgarth community centre.
I joined Future Choices in August 2022. My first experience with Future Choices was helping out at the pop up shop which I thoroughly enjoyed and since then I've decided to dedicate my free time to help with the charity starting with my saltire award and running the charity website. I've met some really nice people and I hope to help out for future years coming.
