Keen Gardener? Opportunity to help our High Street gardeners


FDAMH seeks a Gardening Group Volunteer to oversee and support a group of around 6-8 people within Falkirk to advise and support them in aspects of gardening, planting and maintaining a garden bed located in the High Street in Falkirk.

As well as our aim to reduce social isolation for those who attend, it is also to give people the opportunity to find a new interest, or re-engage with an old one, whilst being supported.

The group hope to meet one afternoon a week, for 2or 3 hours during the Spring and Summer, reducing to once a fortnight as Autumn moves into Winter. The group will run for 12 months, with a hope that the group is ongoing, with new members. If you are reliable with good communication skills, some gardening knowledge and able to commit to the programme we would love to hear from you.

Please get in touch with Morag Fullard at FDAMH to find out more, or you’ll find an application form on our Volunteering Page

FDAMH seeks volunteer eventing receptionists

Evening receptionists are vital, helping us to extend support and services to people whose commitments mean they can’t get help from FDAMH during the day.

Are you someone who is reliable and able to provide evening reception and administration support? With a welcoming and understanding nature the successful applicant will help to ensure the smooth running of appointments and provide reception service for people attending meetings and appointments. Full training for this role will be provided.

Not ‘just’ an admin role – your efforts will help us to reach out to people when they need it, and hopefully before they become overwhelmed.

If you’re interested in this role please contact Morag Fullard at FDAMH by calling 01324 671600.
