Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (better known as CHAS) is a charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people who have life-shortening conditions for which there is no known cure.

CHAS have recently piloted an exciting new home support volunteer service to help deliver support to families in their own homes. Due to the success of this pilot we are now looking to expand this service to reach more families who require our help and support.

Two main activities home support volunteers would be involved within would be sibling support and practical support. Sibling support can include helping siblings with homework, activity and play, drop off and pick up from clubs or groups and practical support can include cleaning, ironing, shopping and/or dog walking. Any prospective volunteers might be interested in one of these areas or both. You will make a massive difference to the lives of families going through the most difficult time of their lives.
