Volunteering

The volunteering page is where we advertise our latest volunteer opportunities, and also details of upcoming volunteer events and training. We aim to be flexible in our volunteering opportunities and we are keen to hear from anyone who may be interested in volunteering.

Volunteering could include a number of activities including: sharing and actively taking part in our social media, attending events, distributing promotional material, writing blogs/vlogs, helping us arrange a regional event or supporting the work of local network groups and much more.

Our volunteer handbook is available here SRA Volunteer Handbook REVIEW June19

The SRA Campaign Toolkit is available here Scottish Rural Action Campaign Toolkit Oct2018

Volunteer Roles

Rural Voices

Could you be a rural voice? We are looking for volunteers to form  short-term campaign groups. This is a great opportunity to learn how to campaign on an issue and influence decision-makers. More information on campaign topics will be available in Spring 2019.

You will learn about campaigning and how you can make your issue heard at a local and national level. Volunteers will receive ongoing support and campaign training.

Past training events:

Telling Your story using digital: Building your own grassroots campaign

This workshop will be held on 19th September at Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline and will cover the basics of digital storytelling and using your mobile device to develop a realtime social media campaign. Led by Jennifer Jones.
