Volunteers play an important part in the ALLIANCE's work and we are currently considering how to develop the role of volunteers further. Our Volunteering and Involvement Strategy is available here. The ALLIANCE has achieved the Volunteer Friendly Award with the support of the Glasgow Volunteer Centre.
There are three main ways in which individuals can become involved in the work of the ALLIANCE:
- As part of the ALLIANCE Involvement Network which is open to people living with long term conditions and unpaid carers who want to contribute to campaigning and policy activities.
- By volunteering in organisational roles, for example helping with office-based activities or events.
- By applying to be accepted as a member of the ALLIANCE Board.
Change Scotland for the better with digital people power; volunteer with the ALISS Programme!
Volunteer Role: Micro-Volunteering
Organisation: The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE)
Supported by: ALISS Coordinator
How much time do you spend playing Solitaire or Candy Crush on your mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer? We would love to tap into a small amount of that time and use your local knowledge for social good. If you don’t have a lot of spare time, are not looking for any commitment but are still looking to volunteer this could be the flexible volunteering opportunity for you.
Do you know of services in your local area that can help support people to live well? Could you recognise a service that’s been entered wrongly into ALISS and make the required changes? If you have five minutes of time to spare while commuting, if you have some downtime while at work, if you could spare some time in the morning during breakfast or in the evening from the comfort of your bed, contact us for more details.
· Adding information on local services that can support people to live well to the ALISS website
· Checking the information added to ALISS is correct then approving the information to go live on the ALISS website
We would like you to fill in a short survey before starting that would help us create a great ALISS micro-volunteering experience for you.
Training will be provided.
ALISS is a digital service that connects communities, helping people find and share resources that support health and wellbeing.
It’s often difficult to find information online that can support wellbeing, sometimes it’s because the information is not online or because there are too many different sources online to enable people to find specific support. ALISS solves this problem by enabling people to find the information they need on one website.
If you are interested in this exciting opportunity with the ALISS Programme, please call 0141 404 0239 or email email@example.com to arrange a chat with Lorna Prentice, the ALISS Programme Coordinator.
