Say "Aye" to Volunteering today!

Aye Volunteer is a matchmaking app, allowing your organisation to post and self-manage your volunteering opportunities as well as help you find suitable volunteers.

This app is free, easy to use, and will enable a quicker connection between those looking for opportunities and those needing volunteers.

At HTSI, our aim is to be the one-stop shop for all things volunteering in the inner Moray Firth. Whether you are new to volunteering or have volunteered before, whether your organisation works with volunteers or is just thinking about it, we aim to support you in the following ways.

What we do:

  • 1:1 support for organisations who work with volunteers with their Policy and procedure

Whether you have involved volunteers in your organisations for a long time, or just starting to think about it, we can offer you 1:1 support in getting your Volunteer policy and procedures right for your organisation, ensuring safe and effective volunteer environments. If you need examples and templates, we have them. If you need advice and support, we can arrange a meeting, and if you wish to gain your Volunteer Friendly Award you have come to the right place.

  • Recruiting Volunteers

HTSI can help your organisation recruit volunteers. Get in touch and let us know about your opportunities and we can advertise them for you on our website, our social media pages and through The Volunteer Scotland website. Download the following forms and return them, or simply get in touch and do it over the phone. Email us your volunteering opportunities.

  • Getting into Volunteering

Whether you are new to volunteering or have plenty of experience, we can help you find the right role for you. We work with Volunteer Scotland to advertise up to date roles in your area. Click on the here to see what is available today.

We are in the process of developing a Highland wide volunteer App, which will make finding out about volunteer opportunities in your area, simple and straight forward. You will be able to link up with appropriate and suitable organisations easily. If you require a little extra support, however, we are more than happy to help.

Sue supports any individual looking to become a volunteer and promotes volunteering. She offers one to one support for those struggling to navigate or secure a role through more traditional pathways, possibly through lack of confidence, skills or suitability, and works with them to secure options to take this forward.

Sue is always looking for new ways to encourage individuals to volunteer and help promote the concept of volunteering. Sue advertises and supports the promotion of volunteering roles locally and through the national volunteering website, Volunteer Scotland.
