Parentline Scotland seek Helpline Volunteers

14 Apr 2014

ParentLine Scotland is the free, confidential helpline for any adult in Scotland who is caring for or is concerned about a child, to call or email about any problem or worries concerning a child. No problem is too big or small. Call takers listen and provide support, help and information, and where appropriate, signpost to other support agencies who can help.

Volunteers are the front-line of Parentline Scotland's Service, listening to and supporting parents or carers calling about any problem or worry concerning a child. No previous experience is necessary - full training is provided through a 40 hour telephone counselling based course before going on line. Volunteers receive one to one support and supervision and further development opportunities are available.
