We have more than 20 amazing volunteers and between them, they have contributed over 6000 hours last year! Our volunteering roles can be tailored to your interests and skills.

To become a volunteer, all you need is enthusiasm and a desire to help. A little of your spare time makes a huge difference. You can volunteer as much or as little time as you like and any time will be greatly appreciated. With your help, we will be able to continue to help and support the families of Drumchapel, Yoker & Knightswood.

One of our Volunteers said the following about volunteering at Bairn Necessities, "Before Bairn Necessities, I wasn't doing much apart from taking the kids to nursery and school. After that I would just go straight back home. I wouldn't ever see or speak to many people. When i started volunteering with the project, I immediately felt valued. In a way I see what I do at 3D as my own self-help because it makes me feel better within myself that i get to help others in need. I have been there before, away down low and I know how hard it is to get back up on top but Bairn Necessities has done that for me. The appreciation we receive from families that we support, also makes me feel great as I know we have helped someone just by doing something small. We get to see this first hand as many families self refer and they could not be any more grateful for the help they receive. That is what keeps me wanting to do more. Bairn Necessities hasn't only been of benefit to me but also my family as I am much happier within myself and that reflects on my children".
