Shining On - drop in info session for volunteersFriday 20th MayRaploch Community Campus, Drip Road, Stirling FK8 1RD – Room 110am -12 noon – drop in 12.30 – 2.30pm – booked interviews for those who have completed the application and are ready to progress through the process.
This is a chance to meet with the Shine Mentors who work in the Forth Valley area and who will be referring women into Shining On. It’s a chance to have a chat with them about how they see the volunteer role benefitting the women who choose to link in with Shining On. For anyone wishing to apply to participate in the service as a volunteer in whatever capacity this is a chance to meet me as the Volunteer Co-ordinator and our Shine Partnership Manager.
Spring 2022 sees the launch of Shining On, a pilot project based in the Forth Valley, continuing and building on the work carrried out by Shine Mentors with our Mentees.
Shining On works with women who have completed their formal mentoring support with Shine and are ready to engage with a volunteer to continue to work to achieve personal goals and gain confidence, experience increased wellbeing and reduce social isolation.
Volunteers will fulfil a distinct role that is different and complementary to that of Shine employed mentors. Volunteer’s primary task will be to offer support by befriending women who are approaching the end of their mentoring period and have requested continued involvement. You will be introduced and begin to build up the relationship with your match whilst they are still linked in with their Shine Mentor and participate in a "warm" handover.
Recruitment is currently underway as at April 2022. We welcome interest from people with experience of this type of role however training will be provided. It is anticipated that we will hold an intake event towards the end of April 2022 when further information will be available and there will be an opportunity to submit applications. Date and venue to be confirmed.
