Volunteering at The Yard

Where would The Yard be without volunteers?

The Yard has a pool of dedicated volunteers who give up their time every week to come and be a part of The Yard family. We asked three of our fab volunteers why they liked to volunteer with us, here’s what they said…


“I love getting to act like a child again and seeing laughing smiling faces everywhere… going up there is one of the highlights of my week and I would highly recommend joining The Yard team to anyone.” Gregor


“I’ve been volunteering for over 5 years and it must be one of the best jobs in the world! There’s never a dull moment. I’ve had the privilege of meeting some of the most amazing children, and always leave with a smile on my face.” Debbie


“I sometimes think that I get more out of my volunteering activities than anyone else I almost always leave feeling happy – maybe I feel more blessed with what I have or maybe I’ve managed to make a tiny difference to someone, and if this is the case, the time spent is well worth while. At The Yard, I feel like I have a second family not only with the kids but also with their families and the staff and volunteers.” Beth

Without people like Gregor, Beth & Debbie The Yard would not be as warm, or as welcoming as it is to our children. We would like to thank everyone who volunteers for us for their hard work and dedication.

Our next volunteer recruitment night is on the 27th June, if you think you would be a good fit for The Yard please get in touch with Mark on mark@theyardscotland.org.uk.
