Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland – Rehabilitation Support Volunteer

Do you want to help people who have had a stroke set and achieve rehabilitation goals? We help people gain confidence and independence. You can volunteer in a hospital or community setting. Take the plunge!

Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland is looking for caring, empathetic, sociable and versatile people to join our team of rehabilitation support volunteers.

We provide hospital or community-based support to people who have had a stroke. Our volunteers support people to set, plan and achieve their rehabilitation goals. We help people to gain confidence and independence. We do not provide personal care.

We seek to reduce social isolation, increase health and well-being and support people to achieve the best recovery they can.

We are an inclusive and diverse organisation. Many of our volunteers and staff self-identify as disabled. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, including students (particularly SLT and OT students), retirees, stroke survivors, business people, civil servants, self-employed people and many more.

We provide comprehensive training appropriate to your volunteer role and all travel expenses.
