Find out for yourself how rewarding volunteering can be
From building friendships and widening your networks to the feelgood factor that comes from giving your time to help those who are vulnerable, there are hundreds of different reasons why people choose to volunteer for The Mungo Foundation.
Our volunteers tend to fall into one of three categories.
- Volunteering within one particular service
- Corporate Volunteers
- Volunteering for one-off campaigns / fundraisers

"I volunteer for the buzz. I love it. If I can make somebody laugh or smile, that’s me. Planting the potato crop was a favourite moment – and we harvested it, and had it for their dinner." (June at Riddrievale)
Volunteering within a Service
Volunteering within a service allows people to develop lasting relationships with those we support, and learn new career-boosting skills along the way.
Safeguarding those we support is one of our highest priorities. As a result volunteers based within services need to complete a PVG assessment before they can begin their volunteer journey.
Want to make a difference to people’s lives, and see your colleagues in a whole new light? Why not consider corporate volunteering!
The work that one team is able to achieve in one day can have a lasting impact on the lives of those we support. Whether it’s sprucing up the garden or doing a bit of DIY, corporate volunteering can be a really satisfying way to build camaraderie within your team, whilst simultaneously giving back to the community.

Volunteering for one-off campaigns / fundraisers
Over the year there are often exiting opportunities to get involved and help out. For example, in Spring 2020 we started The Winter Kitchen, a pop-up soup kitchen near St Enoch’s Subway Station in Glasgow. The service, set up in collaboration with a number of partners, welcomed nearly 1600 visitors across 22 days, before closing early due to COVID-19.
