Volunteering

As a registered Scottish charity, Fyne Futures takes its charitable objectives seriously.  Offering volunteering opportunities is at the very heart of those objectives.

  • To promote training and education, particularly in such skills as may assist the participant in obtaining paid employment.
  • To relieve unemployment in such ways as may be fit, including assistance in finding employment.

We value those who volunteer with us and their contributions to our enterprise.  We recognise that the relationship with our volunteers is for mutual benefit.  We acknowledge that there is no enforceable obligation, contractual or otherwise on our volunteers or Fyne Futures. Please find a copy of our Volunteer Policy here.   Volunteer Policy v0.1 Approved

We have a variety of volunteering opportunities to suit needs and aspirations you may have.  People volunteer for many reasons, both past and present volunteers have came to improve their health, regain confidence, get back into a routine, and to learn new skills.

Types of volunteering opportunities available –

ReStyle – at the shop; in the store; or out in the van.  Volunteers have the opportunity to learn team working, customer service, retail sales, stock room, and manual handling.  Or perhaps you have time and a skill in furniture repair that you would like to contribute and help us with our commitment to quality.

ReCycling Centre – in the materials recovery shed or out on the trucks.  Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about recyclable processing, health & safety awareness, operating machinery, manual handling, team working and customer service.  Or perhaps you have time and are keen to promote environmental best practice and help us with our online marketing.
