01 | Volunteering



Registering your organisation entitles you to a range of services from STRiVE. You will receive a variety of information to keep you up to date with policy and best practice in volunteering.

You can also register your opportunities on our database – these are then accessible to potential volunteers via our own website, the Volunteer Scotland website and via paper directories held in our office.

Stage 1 – Before you register

Before you register, please read the registration information document.

Stage 2 –  Register your Organisation

To benefit from our services, and to advertise volunteering opportunities, you must first register your organisation: You only need to register your organisation once.

Stage 3

Once you have completed and returned an Organisation Registration Form, you can go ahead and register your opportunities. You need to complete one form per opportunity. There are good reasons for doing this: it means that your organisation gets a higher profile on the database and website; volunteers can easily and quickly find the opportunities that they’re looking for; and we get an accurate idea of what the demand is for volunteers. Please download and refer to the accompanying guidance notes to help you.
