In April 2016 a brand new custom designed building opened in Forth with the aim, via a 3 year development plan, of becoming a vibrant hub from which to deliver an increased range and number of Haven services to families across rural Clydesdale. The ‘Be Included Be Involved’ Project is a new initiative designed to increase access for people living in Forth and the surrounding areas of Clydesdale to a range of volunteering opportunities.

Volunteers are a very important part of The Haven team who work as part of a multidisciplinary team with nurses and therapists to ensure our clients receive the highest standard of care. Volunteer opportunities within The Haven, such as Peer Support Volunteers, Volunteer therapists and a range of additional volunteering opportunities allow people to learn new skills, build confidence and develop experience in a health care setting and as a result move them further towards their personal volunteering/career aspirations.

Through the delivery of an exciting new initiative, the “Be Included - Be Involved” project, and with the support of key partners, we aim to establish self-sustaining, robust volunteering pathways and 30 volunteering opportunities. This will allow us to increase the range and number of services we deliver to families affected by Life Limiting Illness in Clydesdale.

Be Included Be Involved offers the potential for a highly motivated, empathic and compassionate individual to join our multidisciplinary team to support the successful development and delivery of the project and associated outcomes. This is an ideal opportunity for a recent college or university graduate to develop a range of skills in an intern/project assistant role or equally for a confident and skilled administrator to undertake a new challenge as part of a project team.
