I’ve spent some time today looking at voluntary work opportunities on Skye as I think this would be a great way for me to get more involved in community life and meet new people. I have emailed the Skye and Localsh Council for Voluntary Organisations (SLCVO) . What really appeals though is becoming a volunteer advocate for Advocacy Highland. The advocate profile exactly fits my experience working in Adult Social Care as a Social Care Assistant although I will need some training on how the Scottish system differs from the English system. Will see what pans out! So I moved to Skye to escape a pressured job and can’t wait to get back into it (just once a week though)!
