What experiences do you have now which might hep you choose a career? Do you have a part-time job? Think of the different roles you might have in any clubs or activities you take part in or in school. These are all ways of discovering talents and developing skills and personal qualities.

Cornerstone are looking for volunteers to help out locally at the Canalside Day Centre service. Canalside is a day centre service providing support to adults over 65 years with dementia or other support needs in the South West area of Edinburgh. Located in Wester Hailes, the service offers support with daily living skills, reducing social isolation and helping to maintain or improve mobility and independence.
Cornerstone are looking for volunteers who are 16 years or older with a passion for improving the care and support of older adults with dementia. Volunteers will be required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme, the cost of which would be covered by Cornerstone. Any travel expenses incurred while travelling to and from Canalside would also be reimbursed by Cornerstone.
Volunteering at Canalside provides a fantastic opportunity to gain some experience with working in the care sector and would look great on any CV or application for further education.
