CLAN Cancer Support, a leading North-east cancer support charity, is looking to increase its pool of support volunteers in the Peterhead and Fraserburgh area.
The charity has been providing free support services to anyone affected by cancer for over 30 years and currently enlists the help of over 400 volunteers across the north and north-east of Scotland, giving in excess of 40,000 hours of support to the charity per year.
Support volunteers offer those affected by a cancer diagnosis an opportunity to talk with someone who can listen and provide emotional support. To ensure support volunteers are equipped to provide clients the right level of emotional support, a full induction and COSCA validated training will be provided by CLAN’s training team.
Jane Adams, CLAN’s volunteer co-ordinator, said: “A number of support volunteer positions have become available within the Peterhead and Fraserburgh areas and we’d be delighted to hear from those looking to get involved with the charity.
“People who volunteer with CLAN can often find it very rewarding as well as a great method of giving something back to a charity that works in their local community.”
