How you can help

None of our projects and services could be delivered in the community without the help of our volunteers who provide support on a weekly basis.

There are over 120 volunteers now and their contribution is invaluable to the Eric Liddell Centre.

We welcome volunteers of all ages, cultures and abilities, including school pupils who are looking for work experience or to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The Eric Liddell Centre is indebted to its volunteer helpers who, by giving their time, are enriching the lives of others while gaining valuable skills and experience.

If you are able to give some time on a regular basis, whether that is weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even daily and you want to help us make a difference to people’s lives and circumstances, we would love to hear from you.

''Making a positive impact is why I volunteer here''
