Volunteering Why volunteer Why volunteer There are lots of ways that people can get involved in Edinburgh. We are always interested in welcoming people who want to participate in the life of the community. You might have a certain skill or talent you could share, or you may be willing to give some time each week to build relationships with one of our houses. Some volunteers spend a few hours every week, others may be able to do a bit more or less. Volunteering with us is a great way to develop friendships and learn new skills.
