Our Volunteer Co-ordinator

Meet Our Volunteer Coordinator, Jane Feeney...

Volunteer Coordinator

Hi and Happy New Year to everyone!

I have been fortunate enough to coordinate volunteering at ENABLE Glasgow for well over a decade now and can honestly say it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job; I absolutely love meeting new volunteers!

The commitment of time and energy people bring to volunteering  makes a real difference to peoples' lives. We simply couldn't run all of our services without the invaluable input of our volunteers.

Throughout my time in this role, I have been lucky enough to watch many of our volunteers flourish. Indeed many of our past volunteers have gone on to work with us and a great many others stay in touch, coming along for visits and continuing to be involved with our organisation.

Our charity was founded by parents and carers of people with learning disability who had a vision for a better future for their children. We rely on community spirited individuals, like yourselves, to continue to further this vision and support vulnerable adults to have a voice as active citizens.

In return for your support as a volunteer, we aim to make your experience as rewarding as possible...

We have developed structured yet flexible volunteer roles that fit peoples' busy lifestyles. We have learned from volunteer feedback and evolved our opportunities to ensure access to training, support and  out of pocket expenses. We continue to listen to what volunteers tell us and we learn as much from you as you, hopefully, learn from us!

Overall, we believe that volunteering should be a fun experience that allows you to really see the difference you are making to peoples' lives.

Don't just take my word for it though, why not take a look at some of our volunteer testimonials here
