About Action For Children Scotland To include volunteers in the work of Action for Children, assisting the fundraising staff to raise awareness of the work we do, and funds to support the local children's services. We work with children in four ways:- With ones who cannot stay at home; with their families who need support; those who are disabled; those who experience severe difficulties in their lives.
About Opportunity

Volunteers are required to help find placements and collect post money from the sale of the "Guess the Name Soft Toy".The task involves finding shops, hairdressers, pubs, clubs or visitor attractions in your local area who would be willing to look after a soft toy and then regularly checking how they are doing. You will be provided with all the resources you require. The job can be done at times to suit your availability however, we would ask that you check up at least once a month with the soft toy placements. We would ask you to consider involvment in this activity for a full year or more so that consistency with shop contacts is maintained. Hours are dependent upon your availability. Also dependent upon when your local shops are open.
