VOLUNTEER WITH US
We ask that any individual interested in such an opportunity has a willingness to learn and develop themselves, and that they also have an openness to work with children. We appreciate that volunteers come to us without perhaps any experience or previous knowledge of this line of work, which is why we work closely with them to build their confidence within the role, and enhance their skillset to become knowledgeable and qualified to support the delivery of our programmes.
You can contact either Dave Mackay or Stephanie Dawson, they both run the Community Football Programmes at the Falkirk Foundation. After an initial call or email, you will be invited in for an informal discussion on where your volunteering journey will be best place to begin with us. We work around your availability to arrange a placement that suits you, so that we work together to implement a commitment that works for both parties.
