CLAN Cancer Support offers clients a range of practical and wellbeing support at our Support & Wellbeing Centres across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
CLAN Support Volunteers are a key point of contact for clients accessing CLAN services ensuring that the needs of our clients are met through our range of support services. Support Volunteers also offer clients an opportunity to talk with someone who can listen and provide emotional and wellbeing support. Support is given either in person or on the telephone.
Some locations also run group support sessions where support volunteers are required to support the running of the groups and provide support to participants.
Our Support Volunteers don’t have to be experts. You will be trained in the skills that will enable you to provide the right level of emotional support to all our clients.
A regular time commitment is preferred to allow us ensure the support rota is covered weekly, however, this can be discussed and agreed on an individual basis.
